    • School
      Bill Gates first attended View Ridge Elementary School.
      He was very smart, and this school was boring to him so he read the whole Encyclopedia
      In grade Seven his parents were worried about him not getting challenged, so they sent him to Lakeside School ; a private boys’ only school
      Here he would also meet future business partners, Paul Allen and Steve Ballmer
    • Lakeside School
      Lakeside school was also one of the first schools to have a ASR- 33 teletype machine. They were connected via phone line
      You would type a question into the teletype machine and the computer would print back an answer
      This machine acted like a computer, but the real computer was down the street
    • Computers
      • Seeing the teletype machine was like love at first sight for bill. He took a interest in computers and started by programming and designing a Tic- Tac- Toe game. It would allow users to compete with the computer.
      • By age 13 he was programming computers. One of the he programmed was a computer to be used by the City of Seattle.

    • Computers
      The first ever computer to be sold to the public was the Altair 8800 built by MITS international
      When first seeing the Altair 8800 with Paul Allen, at Harvard University, they contacted Ed Roberts; the president of MITS and informed him they had a version of BASIC (Beginners All- purpose Symbolic Instruction Code) written for this computer
    • Truth: They didn’t. But in the next three weeks they wrote one from scratch
    • Microsoft
      After getting a deal with MITS they formed Micro-soft (within a year the hyphen was dropped) a name that originated from microcomputer and software. Their first office was located in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
      In the following year Microsoft was relocated to Bellevue, Washington
