Hi everybody

This is a true story even though it sounds incredible :
I discovered Basic Bascom more than 22 years ago at the hospital where I was "repaired" after a terrible motorcycle accident. I stayed there for 9 months.
Between two physio sessions, I translated the Bascom user manual for my use. Before I used Basic Stamp for my hobby.
I lost my job as a result of the accident. a friend asked me if I could modernize his laboratory equipment for biology. I set up my development company. We have sold more than 1,500 machines to date. I did not make a fortune but lived to retirement quite comfortably.
Now I build "Special clock" as Astronomic clock as hobby.... still with BASCOM

your meeting with Bascom and your developments with, are surely interesting, why not tell them in a few lines ?

JP,
my reason is not dramatic. In the mid 70's I started with microprocessors. Got through ASM, Fortran, Basic and the projects got to be bigger and heavier by the year.
Then in about 2005 I took a look at microcontrollers to make programing more effective.
After not liking 'PIC', Atmel seemed to be the choice.
Looking for a compiler, I ended up with the more flexible BASCOM compiler. I have a dislike about 'C'.
Right now (after getting settled in Austria) I am working on version 2 of the VTOL.
Meanwhile 7 controllers (and getting to be more) communicating and controlling everything possible in the airplane including landing. Developed all the needed boards (pitot for compensated airspeed, gravity, 18-ch servo controller, EDF-motors rpm, navigation, distance to ground and so on). Happy with BASCOM, Mark and the Forum.
I better stop writing before it is a NOVEL.
Greetings
Hubert

Hello people, I discovered Bascom through the Griffo site in 1999 and immediately bought the BASCOM 8051 and the AVR, I really liked the development of MCS. I learned to program in 1982 with a Sinclair 1000 and to love the BASIC. Then I programmed for years in ASM of Z80 which is my second passion in programming, I developed 8 games of electronic roulette that were very successful in the gaming market and several other projects, but all development that can be done with an AVR I do it in BASCOM . I am looking forward to the launch of BASCOM ARM and I am currently developing for Raspberry Pi with XOJO (BASIC) which in my opinion is an excellent multiplatform product.
I feel very comfortable in the forum and I enjoy the comments and camaraderie of its members.
Best regards.
