Hello World

10 PRINT “HELLO WORLD”
20 GOTO 10
That was probably the first program I ever wrote, circa 1982, on a commodore PET computer – the only computer in our elementary school at the time. It was fascinating to watch the text scroll endlessly as the program ran. From there I improvised and learned all sorts of commands, logic, and data structures. Looping, branches, strings, arrays, etc. I was hooked.
