Career in Programming

A Career in Computer Programming

This is a (mostly) non-technical account of the joys of computer programming, diverse working environments, and my education in the social skills needed to thrive in those different environments. My career spanned 44 years. During that time I plied my trade in a small startup, several small business, a general partnership, a sole proprietor, and finally as an employee in a international fortune 500 company. I describe the different cultures I encountered while working in these businesses.
