Absolutely nothing.

I started programming at a young age (25+ years ago), self taught until I started CS at the university. I just stumbled upon a compiler and started playing around with it.

The journey was full of wonder and amazement. The benefit of not knowing anything, discovering all these new things. Making all these mistakes, learning from them.
