Fifty Years of BASIC, the Programming Language That Made Computers Personal

TIME

Knowing how to program a computer is good for you, and it’s a shame more people don’t learn to do it.

For years now, that’s been a hugely popular stance. It’s led to educational initiatives as effortless sounding as the Hour of Code (offered by Code.org) and as obviously ambitious as Code Year (spearheaded by Codecademy).

Even President Obama has chimed in. Last December, he issued a YouTube video in which he urged young people to take up programming, declaring that “learning these skills isn’t just important for your future, it’s important for our country’s future.”

I find the “everybody should learn to code” movement laudable. And yet it also leaves me wistful, even melancholy. Once upon a time, knowing how to use a computer was virtually synonymous with knowing how to program one. And the thing that made it possible was a programming language called BASIC.

Cedanio Bacon – A Positive Thinking Philosophy

Cedanio Bacon

Cedanio Bacon –  Certified Internet Webmaster (CIW)

One of the most important things I’ve learned growing up is to monitor your attitude and its impact on your work performance, relationships and everyone around you.

My Philosophy

Your mind is a computer that can be programmed. You can choose whether the software installed is productive or unproductive. Your inner dialogue is the software that programs your attitude, which determines how you present yourself to the world around you. You have control over the programming. Whatever you put into it is reflected in what comes out.

I think moral standards and principles are what a person stands for, how serious he is about his beliefs, that’s more important than any amount of money. To be taken seriously and respected is more important than being admired.

Changing My World!

I love being around kids because they don’t understand problems. They don’t care about rent or what kind of car you drive their hearts haven’t even allowed them to understand what hate is. I look at them and see the value in just waking up every morning in a good mood. I look at them and it helps me keep things in perspective that drives me to become a better person, role model, friend, uncle, brother, son.

“I focus on the little things. Little things add up to big things you’ve got to be loyal to what you believe in, and then always believe you’re going to win and be successful.” –Cedanio Bacon, Certified Internet Webmaster (CIW)

Cedanio Bacon | What Inspires Me

Tell me I cannot  do, be or have something  and that is one of the surest ways to inspire me into action, says Cedanio Bacon.

What inspires me is simply when the “impossible becomes possible” to tackle a problem and never give up, no matter how challenging.

“Always look for people smarter than you, and surround yourself with people who can challenge and inspire you.” –Cedanio Bacon, Certified Internet Webmaster (CIW)

I have to give credit to my

My Parents: Their love and support and hard work to raise, educate, push and nurture me is commendable and I know that I am very grateful to have them be a major factor in my life.

My Instructor Vera Bourenina: I can’t even imagine what it would have been like to teach me and my classmates back when I was in college. Every day was very intense and challenging every one of my classmates wanted to be GREAT! Mrs. Bourenina is by far the best teacher I ever had and she help change my life for the better.

It’s always good to be surrounded by people who choose to dedicate their lives to helping us learn something. Education is more than reading, writing, and arithmetic. It is one of the most important investments a country can make in its people and its future and is critical to reducing poverty and inequality.

Some of the best advice I received from my instructor while studying entrepreneurship. “Surround yourself with great advisor’s, and a great network.  Don’t be afraid to ask lots of questions, and be willing to pay for good advice.”

My Friends & Family: No matter where I have lived in my life I have had great friends and family around me. They have helped me through tough times and celebrated with me in good times. They have shown me the kind of love that exists through respect and mutual adoration I’m grateful to have people like that in my life.

My words for today “Live Each Day As If It Was Your Last”

“Always look for people smarter than you, and surround yourself with people who can challenge and inspire you.”–Cedanio Bacon, Certified Internet Webmaster (CIW)
