I stumbled across the YouTube channel when looking around for retro computing things to watch. I donít know who this programmer is but he has a super positive attitude and heís writing a BASIC program on an Apple ][. Thatís all I need to know.

He is verbalizing the way I think through my workday. What heís doing in this video is how I learned to write my first program with a VIC-20 back in 1982. I wasnít allowed in the high school computer lab until I was a freshman, and then I got to try my chops on the Apple ][+ and new Apple //e machines we had in the computer lab, which was managed by the math department.
