I started my career with TurboC on MS-DOS . The project was on real time systems along with graphics .
I had worked on my C graphics in my academics and hence I had a hang of it. However the most interesting part of my project was handing the keyboard and mouse ….. I was giving MS DOS a Windows look . …. in my leisure time I used to work on Window 3.1 .
Using interrupts was the first challenge … Ray Duncan’s “Advanced DOS” helped a lot in this matter. I was working on interrupts and graphics ; when one fine day, my superior told me I had to work on Visual C++ .
Though I was a bit worried about this new stuff “Visual C++” .. remember in my time Internet was a rare thing, and only the privileged one could get access to it at least in my organisation. Internet rates were so high that I could not personally afford a connection at that point of time.
Little did I realize that day, that learning curve would take to me great heights in later days.
Cutting it short, I mainly work on C++, STL, Windows SDK Programming, MFC,COM, ATL and presently on .NET. Looking forward to work on WTL as well.
Just a last word, Windows SDK Programming still rocks !!!!!!!!!!!
