In 2002 I moved back to Switzerland, and found a first job as a developer in a company making a super expensive product nobody needed.
Back in 1997 I was earning some cash writing Active Server Pages in that mutant programming language called VBScript.
As far as I can remember, I have always been fascinated by computers.
This is the talk that I gave in the 4th MCE Conference in Warsaw, Poland, on May 8th, 2017 (conference organized by Polidea) and (with updates) at UIKonf on May 15th, 2018 and at NSConfArg on April 20th, 2019.
