Happy to find another "old-timer" on here. I've been using all sorts of computers since 1981, have done a little bit of coding along the way, am studying computer science now. Here I'm looking for guidance, inspiration, motivation and of course learning buddies.

Hello, Everyone, too

Like Douglas and KK's ABC, I'm an oldtimer, almost a fossil. But, I've loved learning all my life, and I want to keep learning. I love geography, both human and physical, and I'd love to be able to learn programming for geographical information systems applications like QGIS and ArcGIS in order to help non-profits and community groups to develop their own mapping and spatial analysis tools so that they can better understand what's going on where they live and what they might be able to do about it. Oh, and educational games. I'd like to try to learn how to make them, too. That's it!
