Here we go!

Postby Paulo Silva » Mon May 29, 2017 7:35 pm

Hi,

Having a background in digital electronics and microprocessors, my first personal computer was a TK-90X, a ZX Spectrum clone available in Brazil, back in the 80’s. But before that I had learnt BASIC programming in a CP500, a brazilian TRS-80 clone. After a period playing games and typing listings from magazines, especially from INPUT, I moved on to an MSX computer. In the early 90’s, I went to college to study computer science and got onboard the IBM PC wagon, leaving behind several years of awe and pleasure as I discovered the wonders of those 8-bit machines, especially the Spectrum.

Fast forward to present day, I am now a software engineer writing iOS apps and dabbling with TypeScript.

I'm pretty excited with the Spectrum Next and all new possibilities it brings to us, old-time speccy fans. I have many ideas I want to try on the Next, ranging from tinkering with FPGA programming and going to making a game.

My excitement is so high that I started a blog dedicated to my studies around the Next http://8bitnotes.com. Since I'm practically starting over after 30+ years, I am (re)learning how to use and program the Spectrum.
