I was fortunate that in junior high school I had access to an 1802 board. Also switches to enter instructions, very limited I/O (two LED characters). But totally fascinating to play with. Later in had a TRS-80 computer, and quickly went from Basic to Assembler.

In the 80s I worked for a company manufacturing EGA/VGA chips, and we had special access to some MS pre-release software so we could develop drivers. One day we got this big box of disks for a very early pre-release of Windows 3.0, and it came with Petzold's book. It was my first introduction to him and developing for Windows....
