As youngster spent a lot of time admiring MS-DOS environment, playing quite a lot of games and a bit of batch programming
Worked several years as GIS specialist, hydrologist, water distribution and collection systems modeller. By that time came across with programming mainly on Windows based platforms (visual basic, power shell, batch).
Thing that changed life - python (Argisscripting module). Once found started to lean more and more to open source and cross platform technologies. Then came across github, finally made some tidiness in codes.
Lately switched to database industry, specializing on ASE by SAP (formerly Sybase)
