Pab Sungenis, developer

 

Hi, I’m Randy Kindig and this is an interview-only episode of Antic, The Atari 8-bit computer podcast.  Our guest for this show is Pab Sungenis, a long-time (and current) developer for the Atari 8-bits.  A long time ago, Pab wrote a popular piece of bulletin board software called AtariLink BBS.  He also developed an off-line mail reader.  He was also more recently involved briefly with enhancements to the SpartaDOS alternative DOS, arguably one of the best DOS’s ever developed for the Atari 8-bit.  His current project is an exciting one where he is working to develop a new programming language to target the Atari 8-bits.  I hope you enjoy this.

 

Teaser Quotes:

“I kinda got into the habit of: if you need it, write it.”

 

“It surprised me when my hacks of Keith's (Ledbetter) programs started finding their way onto Compuserve.”

 

“What if you took Action! and you added object-oriented programming?”
