Jared Sieling is a freelance software developer in Minnesota.
What initially sparked your interest in technology?
When I was real little my dad brought home an Apple II computer, with the big floppy disks, and I’d spend hours going through all the disks, starting them up, and seeing what their programs did. Mesmerized me. Of course, the games took up most my time, with Lode Runner being the best and Oregon Trail a close second. (Let the debate begin!)
What was the first programming language you learned?
Visual Basic. In 7th grade, I learned it to build a study tool for my geography class.
