Tandy 1000

Year released: 1986

Just Blaze: "I started learning to program computers in fourth grade on a Tandy 1000. My first program was really basic. The computer would say "Hello", you would say "Hi", it would ask you your name, you would say "Justin", it would say, "Hi, Justin, how are you?" Very basic, but for a fourth-grader in the '80s it was pretty good. It got to the point where I was designing my own rudimentary video games by the time I was in sixth grade."
