Where it all began – learning to program in 1K of RAM

We all had to start somewhere. While repacking old cardboard box loads of 80’s magazines into more protective plastic containers, I surprisingly ran across this book!

Its my first foray into computer programming, and 34 games meant I had plenty of them to play on my brand new ZX81 at the time. Its this book I can credit as my main learning resource for computer programming.

I recently typed in one of these games into an emulator. Its amazing that some of these games are quite playable given how little memory 1k was…
