Giovanni Dicanio
I started programming with a Commodore 64, in BASIC and then assembly; C=64 was my first "computer love".
Then I moved to Amiga (I have an Amiga 500), with AmigaBASIC and Assembly ("bashing" Amiga's hardware with MC68000 assembly was a pleasure :)
Then I learned Windows programming in C and then C++, using both Win32 SDK and MFC. Then I learned something about COM and ATL. C and "moderate C++" are my strongest programming languages.
Recently, I have started enjoying the great Microsoft .NET framework... but I must confess that I really love low-level things and the advanced control that C and C++ offer.
