Today I was listening to episode 1 of the Ladybug podcast (which is great - you should definitely check it out) where they described how they all got started in tech.
So I thought I'd ask the community: What's the story of how you learned to code?
When I was 12, I found out that you could program in BASIC on our old ATARI 800. I made some funny beeps and drew some awesome lines on the screen 🤘
I loved computers, but didn't touch code again until high school, when I picked up HTML for the first time
I spend a stupid amount of time trying to make rounded corners on divs before
Finally, in college, I took my first CS class in JAVA
I got my first job doing Ruby on Rails; which was the first programming language I felt like I could think in
Now I'm a web and mobile developer - and I still think it's magical that I can make a computer do stuff just by typing ✨
SO: What's your developer origin story?
