Hi, i was playing games for a long time and thought about how to create a game.. This was pretty interesting for me, but then i saw what you re able to when you can code:) This was much more interesting!
I started with Java 2.0 but that was at that time to hard for me.. A few years later, i remembered my interest for this and i started again. This time it worked fine for me So i am still here and learn programming and working to get some certificates next year
Shear hatred that Windows limited me to their buttons. It went like this.
What is that VBA? I can write my own buttons, AWESOME!!! How does this work? Whow thatís cool. Then I got to college. What people will pay me to do this I am so there.
Yep, the joys of growing up in a dial up world we had no clue the rest of the world needed people to do what we were doing or that banks had big computers in them. I just thought it was something that I had to learn to type papers in college. But I became addicted to the ability to control information and the computer itself. Some people like to call it a god complex, I just call it being me.
What made me get into programming is my passion towards controlling the PC, i like programming because with it you have control over a whole machine that can whatever you wish from it if you know how to give it the proper commands. What inspired me the most is when i was at school and we were studying about software and programming(very general stuff), the teacher said: "when you are the user, the computer is the master and you are the slave, but when you are the programmer, you are the master and he is the slave!", that really inspired me besides my interest in writing games and make web applications and my passion towards doing better than others. After starting to programming programming became a hobby, fun and passion...
Oregon trail!!! I remember that program from when I was like 10!!! I got into programming because at 14 I wanted to do something that no one in school was doing, and that was IT Support. From there, I had to write my first batch file to automatically start windows 3.1 on 286 to P2 machines using QBasic, and it has grown from there!
When I was in 7th or 8th grade I got my first home PC and AOL with a blazing fast 28.8k modem! As I surfed the web I started getting really tired of bad websites that were hard to navigate and had dead links/pictures. So I started reading up on HTML and got into making crappy little websites. I was lucky enough to get a Senior internship with a company in town that was on the cutting edge of technology at the time. They really molded me for what was to come next in my career, unfortunately our section was cut and I've pretty much been unemployed since.
So I went to school for Web and got my Associates degree, still couldn't find work, started my own business, pretty much failed then went back to school for programming. I really enjoyed programming, it did a number on my brain and I hadn't felt that in a long time...and I liked it. Here we are eight months after graduation and I'm still unemployed...and very rusty...
And as someone above me said...I also do it for the chicks!
