NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- My graduating class at Georgia Tech was the last of the slide rule era, as the class of 1966 did not have any class work that involved the use of a computer. As soon as I joined Grumman Aerospace after graduation I knew that computers would be important throughout my business career.While at Grumman I attended the Farmingdale campus of Brooklyn Poly to get my masters degree including learning programming and the use of computers. I taught myself Fortran which is considered the Latin of programming languages in today's world.
