Hello,
 
I think it's time to introduce myself to the participants in the forum. My name is Emmanuel and I am from 
Bulgaria. I'm from the age of dinosaurs, I say that because I'm 63 years old. My programming experience was 
40 years ago when we were programming on Fortran and using punch cards.
Since then, until this year, I have not been seriously involved in programming.
 
Several years ago I decided to make an application - an electronic menu for restaurants. I downloaded 
Android Studio, but after a few months of unsuccessful fighting I realized I was not the person who would 
use Android Studio, I just did not get it.
 
I started to look for other alternatives and came to Corona Labs.
I started trying and it turned out that Corona SDK is a wonderful platform, except for games it can also be 
used for business applications.
Since then I have been in love with the Corona SDK and, of course, with the LUA.
 
Please excuse me beforehand if I ask stupid questions in my posts, but my programming experience is really 
small.
 
I also want to thank agramonte, vlads, nick sherman, who helped me with advice.
 
If I do not violate the rules of the forum I would like to give you a link: www.esgss.eu where you can see 
where the old man came with his application. If the link violates the rules, please the moderator delete it 
or let me know, I will remove it.
 
I wish many successes to all the friends from the forum.
 
My English is very bad, and if there are any inaccuracies in my text, be angry with the Google translator.

Hello and welcome!

 

I imagine programming and software development in general have become a lot easier since you started. :D

Absolutely true, writing a code with Sublime Text and using Corona Simulator is an incomparable pleasure. I 
make a mistake and I can immediately see where I am wrong and change the code.
 
Forty years ago, each row of the code was on a separate punch card, and if we had to sum up the elements of 
a matrix, we went to the computing centre with one shoe box full of punch cards and the next day we had the 
result.
If everything with the code was wrong, we received a printout of the result.
If there was a mistake in the code, we had to scroll through the punch cards and replace the wrong one and 
go back to the computing centre for a next sample of the code.
I have saved a punch card as a memory and I will try to upload the picture here for those of you who have 
not seen such a thing. ( sorry but I not have permissions to upload pictures in future when I obtain the permissions
I upload the picture)

I'm from the age of punch cards, 300 baud modems, and green-white paper as well.

 

It's a much different world today.
