Amir Barak's Blog

 

What's to say? I write code, drink coffee, play with my kids and generally try to enjoy life as much as I can. Started programming with BASIC on my C64, moved on to Pascal, Cobol (who the heck remembers that thing?) and onwards to C, C++ and nowadays mostly C#.

You can check out my other blogs; here and here.
