It feels fantastic to have been listed by Computer Sweden and Techworld as one of the top 50 developers in Sweden.

IDG Johan Åhlén Topp 50 utvecklare

My interest for programming started in the early 1980s. At the beginning I started programming my mother’s calculator and then enrolled in a BASIC-programming course when I was 9 years old. The first thing we learned was that the BASIC-language was supposed to be similar to English, so the first program I wrote was: “I want to play Pacman”. Of course that program didn’t work really well, but I didn’t give up. A couple of years later, at high school I reached a shared 1st place in the competition “Dataolympiaden”, which was a national high school championship in programming. Now, 25 years later, I still learn new things all the time!

Many thanks Computer Sweden and Techworld for the honor!
