1979–1985
Not much on the ZX-80, but definitely dabbled on the 64K ZX-Spectrum, wasn't just about playing games devised by Brit. Matthew Smith-the-Genius.
1980–1985
When I was 8 I went to a new school which had a computer room. My first program was copied from a magazine onto a ZX-81. Later our first family computer was also a ZX-81, bought for UKP 40 with vouchers collected from the Radio Times.

Dabbled a bit in mid-80s as many of my friends in Brunei had these when I had my Apple IIe

The language of the first computer I ever owned. Remember when magazines used to have code listings for entire games? Remember the awful autocomplete on the ZX 81? I still have the manual for this somewhere too.

I would buy second-hand books about Sinclair BASIC then sit writing and tweaking every line of every program without being able to commit them to tape with the broken datacorder on the 128k +2. Probably the most romantic period of my programming life...
