How did you get into coding and why do you do it.

Posted 10 September 2009 - 03:00 AM

I have three simple questions for everyone involved with this forum.

1.) How did you get into coding and why do you do it? :D

2.) Why do you like it? (And if you don't...explain why because I don't see why anyone would do something that they don't enjoy doing):P

3.) What was your first language and why. :)

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Still to this day, I can never forget Martyr2's original answer in one of those first threads:

I got into programming to get chicks.

Hi,

1. I was in junior high when my brother decided to do computer studies as one of his subjects and instead of actually doing my work (same thing goes for maths), I was reading his text books.

2. Its a challenge, and why would anyone wanna stick with something that's easy.

3. Got involved with Basic first. Did my own program in Basic and amazed a few of my classmates? Now, I'm beginning to wish I had kept all my projects I had ever done. Why? It was 1993/4. When I was a senior thats when I chose computer studies and we were taught Pascal. I was disappointed at first, but because of what I knew in Basic, Pascal seemed easier.

1. I saw Learn to Program BASIC in the school book catalog ( 4th grade I think) and decided I wanted to program games :P I then moved to VB to C++ and finally to Java

2. It's a challenge and something that I can learn quickly.

3. See 1.

I got into coding to find a better job, so I started towards earning a software development degree in community college. Along the way though I found I really like mathematics and more advanced topics that aren't covered at my school. Math stops at 104 - Intermediate Algebra here as a requirement. Everything is very accounting related too, and none of my projects go beyond building crummy cash register type applications for used car dealerships :-P The school really isn't bad about getting people into jobs quickly, but I want to learn more. So I'll be transferring to OSU to start on a computer science degree, as it's much more flexible and in depth.

Oh, and my langauge of choice right now is C#, though I'll be learning more C++ this fall (taking an extra course through The Game Institute).

Since he "crossed it out" the single is left dangling.


Even diabolical tyrants should have proper grammar. ;)
