Richard ZealleyAccording to recent research only 2.1% of professional developers are 55+ so I it looks as though I'm an endangered species. I have been coding since 1979, professionally since 1985, and continue to do so with a small software business called ReZolve.

Initially I programmed in Pascal, having learnt it at University on mainframes and Apple IIe, and worked in the UCSD environment on Motorola 68000 computers and then IBM PCs. I then worked through a number of 4GLs before developing in Visual Basic in various versions from VB3 through to VB.Net.

Currently I work mostly in PHP and MySQL, and maintain legacy projects written in VB.Net.
