Experiments in Code

I started my coding life in the 80s with a ZX Spectrum and a book on Basic. I was hooked. I've been coding ever since. I've worked in a variety of languages and environments, including Hypertalk, Perl, PHP, Processing, Python, R, and ZX Basic (in alphabetical order, because I loved each of them at different times). These days, my mainstay is Python, a happy coincidence given its current dominance in the field of AI. It also explains why I have chosen to use Lektor for this site.

But I will try any new language or framework, just for the thrill. My hard drive is littered with half-finished projects and experiments. Here are a few of them, in no particular order. In recent months I have been able to take them to a fuller stage of completion with the assistance of AI copilots.
