Today is my second week at Codestarter! I am super excited to join Codestarter as their first programmer.
I was first exposed to programming in a class I took one year before I graduated from college. Even though we made very basic and ugly desktop apps, the class totally changed my life. I immediately fell in love with programming.
Despite growing up with computers, I basically thought they were only good for playing games and doing some boring work things.
It took 24 years for me to be exposed to the idea that I could create my own programs for the computer to run. I often wonder what I would be doing today if I had started programming at a younger age.
By this point, I might have already:
- written a few programming languages
- come up with a better scripting language for Vim
- made shell scripting easier
I love programing and I am excited to share it with kids who would otherwise not have access to it.
