Ralph Waggener: Neal Gold did our coding 37 years ago
Comments on: Entire Adair School District will participate in 'Hour of Code'
By Ralph Roy Waggener
When Glinda and I started South Central Printing, Inc. 36 years ago, we did incorporate 37 years ago this month, we got Neal Gold to write Code for us.
Back then we bought two Apple computers. The fast one ran at about 16.5 Gigs and the slow one ran at 7.5 Gigs and we marveled at how much faster the big one ran!
Today, this would be funny compared to the the speeds we run at today.
Neal Gold wrote the Code in a very completed type of Code. I can't remember the name of it.
Very few people even knew what Code was back then, and it is still complicated to most of us who use it.
What Principal Patty Jones is offering at ACPC is something that will give a lot of students a good chance of a career that will pay good money and offer them something for a life time.
Code writers are in demand even as the code writing is getting easier; it will be in demand for a long time.
I salute Alan Reed for the many new directions he is taking our school system in and Patty Jones for taking on this much needed Code education project.
This will continue to make Columbia/Adair County the best in Kentucky and the US!
Thanks for all you do keeping this part of Central Kentucky informed about us.
-Ralph Roy Waggener is President of South Central Printing, INC. and editor/publisher of the extremely popular 'Just for a Smile News.'
