From Cibernética Americano
As you may know, it is unusual for programmers to have life long careers. It's not unheard of though and of course it's the norm for computing academics. Here's the top level of my story.
1974 - 2018
This is the wage labour half of my work life, which is detailed by an unusual amount of material starting with Praxis Tour which as a responsive bootstrap tour, c. 2015 with drupal sites for desktop and mobile devices a cover page and 10 page resume, etc.
1974 is the start because that's when I took training at the schools Control Data was running and actually did first programming, but I went back for a 4 year degree majoring in Math and CS and only had operator jobs until 1980. I did have a DP course at a community college before CDC in '73 which pushes it back to my teens.
From the late nineties I mostly worked remote, but did work on-site in Buffalo in '14, and from the mid-late 80s most of my work was on a contractor/1099 basis. Late '18 is the demarcation point after which I consider this phase of working life ended, the last actual gig was in the spring of that year.
