Thanksgiving 1975 was a lucky day. I had graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with B.S. and M.S. degrees in the early 1970s. I learned computer hardware and software design and also played a video game that summer. I was interviewed by Atari to work on the first machine discussed in this article. I passed the technical interview because I was studying the same microprocessor, the MCS 6502, which the Atari team had chosen. I played a few passable games of Tank on one of the arcade machines, and I was hired on the spot (Decuir, 2015).
