That was really awesome. I remembered my days, somewhere in 2004 when I had just searched online, how can you code a computer(I was like 15 years old, with dial-up connection). so then I heard of C programming language. Then I searched more and started learning C programming. It was really fascinating for me that I could create something that make the computer do for me. I still remember the printf statement which just prints what I want when I run the program. From that day, it changed my life's course itself. Today I am software developer at TomTom. It was really nice reading your post.

 

Thanks Amrut. My only regret is not discovering software development earlier!

 
 

Hi, as you said "would spend all night writing my websites in Notepad" at ~16y.o, with dBase (database) knowledge before (10y.o). I think those were great starting point for software development.
I don't know why a-Delphi-hello-work become "Eureka" ten year later...

I guess I just didn't know how to move forward from making websites, I did make some money but I just didn't know how to translate that into a career. Also, about dBase, I was kid, different times (Around 1995), so it was more of learning stuff just for fun, but nonetheless, it's a great point you making.
