offered to debug the program and fix all the changes they did to the computer. They both worked diligently Gates developed a payroll program for the computer company that had sold them the computers and a scheduling program for the school (www.thebiographychannelwebsite.com). In 1970 when Bill and Paul were both 15 went into business they developed a software called the “Traf-o-Data” this was a computer program that monitored the traffic patterns in Seattle for their efforts and hard work this program was netted for 20,000 dollars (www.thebiographychannelwebsite.com). After the success of the “Traf-o-Data” both youngsters wanted to create their own company, but his implied hard work and a lot of time invested in the company which meant that gates had to leave school to attend the company. Gates parents immediately rejected the offer they wanted Gates to finish High school and go off to college where they both hoped that Bill would become a lawyer. Bill Gates finally graduated from Lakeside High School in 1973. Gates had scored an impressive 1590 out of 1600 on his SAT (www.thebiographychannelwebsite.com).
With the impressive score in his SAT Gates enrolled at Harvard University in the fall. This is where Gates and Allen went their own ways. Allen moved to Boston to work for a company named Honeywell. Gates went into Harvard originally pursuing a career in law, but most of
his time was spent in the computer lab. During his off tome Gates visited Allen in Boston. When they both were in boston the pair were galvanized by a cover story in Popular Electronics promoting the Altair 8800, which was an inexpensive microcomputer produced by a company called MITS in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The both of them saw thi as a very good opportunity because since no one had developed a software for the Altair 8800 they were going to be the first ones. So they saw this as an opportunity of a new industry (www.achievement.org). Without thinking twice Gates dropped out of Harvard in the beginning of his junior year to try and make a name in the business world. Gates and Allen moved to New Mexico in 1975 to produce the software for MITS. The following year in 1967 Gates and Allen started a company called Microsoft. After a few years later MITS was sold so Gates had no other choice but to move Microsoft to Bellevue, Washington very near to his hometown of Seattle. With this choice the Pacific Northwest was the center of the computer software industry (www.achievement.org). after a a few long years of had work Microsoft began to expand and started working with other languages such as Basic, Cobol, Fortan, and pascal.
