Dr Zagami first learnt to program in Basic on a TSR80 on saturday mornings at the back of the Tandy store in the Woodridge Mall at the indulgence of store staff (his parents owned the nearby Pet shop). His first computer was a Commodore Vic20 where without a hardrive, diskdrive or initially even a tape drive, all programs were ephemeral and between power downs were typed in by hand, compiled and debugged before playing.
