Hi, my name's Phil and my first experience with computers was programming in BASIC on the Commodore PET - which should indicate how ancient I am.
Had a lot of teenage fun mucking about with Z80 machine code and a single bit-plane and I've played with all sorts of stuff over the years - mainly 3D, graphics and multimedia - including on the Amiga 1200, some Macs and many, many PCs. (I remember the days when a 486 DX66 was a powerhouse...)
I came across Construct 2 looking for something to use with my 8yo to build games, having already tried him on Scratch and a bit of Python. So far it's been great. We're working through some of the tutorials, and the IDE seems really easy to use and several universes ahead of PEEKing and POKEing on the Spectrum!
Looking forward to many hours of fun.
