My first paid assignment in 1982 was in C, when I created a translation program that translates 8085/Z80 assembler to 8088 assembler. At the time, K&R C was the standard. Until 1996, I mainly programmed in C and C++. With the advent of C#, C and C++ have faded into the background. Programming in C# is simply faster. But if that’s not possible, I can fall back to C and C++ no problem.
