 <h2 id="what-I-learned">What I Learned?</h2>
 
+<p>
+Cortext was my first serious introduction to the Perl 5 programming
+and to the UNIX family of operating systems, which I have considered my
+prefered technologies, for a long time after that. They were both an epiphany
+for me: Perl 5 because it combined what I heard Larry Wall later call, the
+“Manipulexity” of C and C++, and the “Whipuptitude” of the various BASIC
+dialects I had learned, and allowed to write code quickly, but still create
+large managable systems; and UNIX was an epiphany, because while I knew
+that DOS and Windows 3.x sucked, but didn't know why, the various UNIX
+systems I used at Cortext, were actually good, and I found them a joy to
+use.
+</p>
 
+<p>
+Aside from Perl and UNIX, I also dealt extensivley with early versions of
+HTML (not a spectacular technology, but got the job done), some basic
+JavaScript, even before
+<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dynamic_HTML">Dynamic
+HTML</a> and
+<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ajax_%28programming%29">AJAX</a>, to say
+nothing of more recent trends, and which was still quirky and buggy, some
+Java applets, <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MSQL">miniSQL</a> (now
+largely superseded by MySQL and later some other SQL databases), various
+pieces of software from the GNU archive (from its old FTP location at
+prep.ai.mit.edu), the Apache web-server, and a lot of other software for
+UNIX and Windows.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
