This is my first post in DEV and I'm excited about telling you about myself.
In the time I'm writing this post I think I have no followers (for sure) but hope someone sees my post someday and I would have some comments under it.
Anyways let's get started!
My name is Adnan Babakan, I'm 19 and I'm from Iran (a country in middle east) and my city is called Tabriz.
Living in Iran might sound strange but it isn't anything close to what you hear from the news outside especially news from the USA channels like CNN. Are there problems? Yes a lot but not as you might think. I play a lot of games especially online games like Overwatch and Rainbow Six Siege and I encounter lots of people from around the world speaking thousands of languages but fortunately I can speak English and sometimes they also can and most frequently asked question is that aren't you scared? My immediate answer is what the frick? What should I be scared of? And the response to that is WAR!!!! Let's clear this for ever there is no war in Iran, absolutely no war. Actually Iran is a pretty safe country.
Anyways, I'm a computer engineering student in the University of Tabriz and sometimes it feels really bad, why? because everything they are trying to teach me in the programming subject I already know them since I'm a self-taughtt programmer and I feel board in the class but anyways I have to pass these classes anyways (I know I used anyways a lot, but anyways).
I learnt HTML/CSS as my first programming languages when I was 8, LETS STOP HERE BEFORE YOU JUDGE ME, I know these aren't programming languages but I was 8 by then so didn't know what a programming language is.
It was awesome to learn these brothers but I needed more and that more happened to be PHP for my first real programming language.
An advice: Do not learn PHP as your first programming language since you are going to struggle learning others due to PHP's spaghetti problem.
Inner me: Adnan?
Inner me: JavaScri...
Me: Shut up!!!!
Inner me: OK but at least try it for once.
Me: No, absolutely not it is nothing like PHP.
Inner me: But...
Me: No way!
inner me: OK :|
(a few weeks later)
Inner me: Finally this guy made some sense.
I'm student at university but I make web apps a lot and that's how I make some money nothing more.
OK this is a very interesting question. Let's say since I'm a computer guy I love almost everything that is distributed digitally (LOL) especially video games, movies and musics. What kind of music do I listen to? Every kind that makes me feel better in any way.
Except for these I love learning, and learning languages on top of all of them. Languages can be both programming languages and human languages.
I know almost 5 languages and don't think I will ever cease to continue.
Let's start by my mother tongue. Although Iran's official language is Persian (AKA Farsi) but the city I'm living in is the main place of a language called Turki which is almost like Turkish from the country Turkey.
This is how it looks with Persian script: سلام نجورسوز؟ And this is the romanized one: Salam, Najursuz? Which means: Hi, How are you (plural)?
My romanization isn't standard actually but you can read it at least.
It might sound standard but it actually makes sense believe me.
Let me introduce Persian/Farsi to you. So the first question might come in your mind is that why does this language have two names? The answer is that it is actually called Farsi or Parsi (These are almost same and there are lots of talking about which is the main one) but English language calls it Persian.
So let's have an example of this language: سلام من دارم اولین پست وبلاگم رو مینویسم. And the romanized one: Salam, man daram avvalin post-e veblagam ro minevisam. Which means means: Hi I'm writing my first weblog post.
So these two are the languages I learnt as soon as I was born, OK not as soon as that but pretty quickly.
My sister used to watch a lot of Turkish series and since it is close to my mother tongue I adopted it pretty quick. An example of course is: Merhaba, bu benim ilk gönderim. Which doesn't need romanization but the meaning is: Hi, This is my first post.
Then I started to learn English when I was 12 or something and after a few years I was able to listen, speak, write and read and do what I need in English.
These are the 4 languages I know and the 5th one is actually pretty cool and I love it so much which is Spanish or Español. How I learnt it? By using Duolingo.
No se si esto es correcto pero quiero decirles que esta es mi primera publicación.
You can translate that yourself by using Google Translate or something.
So that's me.
Let me know if there are any questions regarding my path or anything else I would be happy answer all of them.
