Tales from Danang Probo Sayekti

This story begins when I can not make a software yet. At the end of 2005, I bought a computer, the components of the computer is my own choice, such as CD-Rom, Casing, Stabilizer, RAM, Matherboard, Processor and others. So my computer is a computer assembly and not from the factory. Cheap price but has a very good performance.

In the early days have a computer, I use the computer just to make the tasks and play games. I still remember those games that I played before, like NFS Most Wanted, Doom 3, FEAR and many other games.

When bored with it all, then I move on to play with the operating system, I am using Windows XP. First I created scripts as simple as making "Empty Recyle Bin" with a right click, change the look of Windows XP like Vista since the first installation and others.

And at the end of 2007, I accidentally read an article in a magazine which deals with software to create a software, namely Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2. In the article it was reported that the magazine gave a demo DVD for those who buy the magazine.

I then asked permission to the owner of the magazine to borrow the DVD. When I got home, then I install the software. First I was confused, then I'm looking for references on the internet about the use of software and programming languages via the internet.

There are 3 programming languages supported by Visual Studio 2008, namely Visual Basic, C++, and C#. I chose to learn C #. After about 3 months using the beta version, the trial of the software had expired, I was confused but after searching on the internet there was a free version of Visual Studio 2008, the Express version.

By not wasting time, I immediately downloaded the free version. After a year learning about programming languages I am finally able to make a software. In early 2009 I began to publish the software.

As long as we try in earnest, there is nothing impossible in this world.
