How I Got Started
I got into computers in high school. My high school (Oakwood Collegiate
in Toronto) had computer courses quite early and I was lucky to have the
chance to take them. They were not challenging enough, but still I learned
a lot. I had a good understanding of how a computer really works, at the bits
and bytes level, very early on and that really helped me.
Programming is something that I like doing and I think I'm pretty good at
it. I especially love programming in Perl. It's the best language I've used,
and I've used Basic, PL/C, Fortran, and C.
I was very fortunate to have been the instructor for a scientific
programming course (thanks, Charles!).
I've been involved in computer graphics programming, and parallel processor
