Re: First Arduino sketch loaded

Jack, W8TEE
 

I was at the Software Development Conference (probably mid-1980's) where Bjarne was the keynote speaker. There were about 750 of us there to hear about this new thing his paper was about titled: "C with Classes". (OOP was not widely known, if at all, by any of the programmers.) About an hour and a half later, 749 people walked out mumbling "What the f_@% was that all about?"

I had both the K&R and Bjarn books.  I donated them to work when I
retired last month.  Both books were well worn.
