“If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.”
Albert Einstein
Software Developer Netgen
South Africa South Africa
I started coding back in high school. My "Computer Science" subject for grade 10 was actually an introduction to programming in Delphi. I struggled a lot and was fairly disheartened and frustrated by the time I got to the end of the book.
That changed, though, when I found an introduction to HTML in the back after all the Delphi. I was hooked! It was simple and I could see the results of my work as I did it.

I kept teaching myself over the years and branched out into other languages as I found my requirements changing.
The first "server-side" tech I learnt was asp.net with visual basic code behind.

Now that I'm working with it as a day job, I've moved over to PHP for my personal projects, so the learning continues.

When I'm not coding, I'm either playing World of Warcraft, some other game or hanging out with friends. I enjoy playing pool and ice skating as "extra curricular" activities.

Software Developer (Senior) Microsoft
United States United States
I started to program computers when I was 11 years old, as a hobbyist, programming in AMOS Basic and Blitz Basic for Amiga.
At 12 I had my first try with assembler, but it was too difficult at the time. Then, in the same year, I learned C and, after learning C, I was finally able to learn assembler (for Motorola 680x0).
Not sure, but probably between 12 and 13, I started to learn C++. I always programmed "in an object oriented way", but using function pointers instead of virtual methods.

At 15 I started to learn Pascal at school and to use Delphi. At 16 I started my first internship (using Delphi). At 18 I started to work professionally using C++ and since then I've developed my programming skills as a professional developer in C++ and C#, generally creating libraries that help other developers do their work easier, faster and with less errors.
