re: What was your first programming language and why? VIEW POST


I was 14 years old. The 56k internet was down for some reasons (probably because we had a cheap plans and used it all) and I started browsing the C:/ drive. I ended up in the browser cache reading some JavaScript.

Then, I learned the whole HTML, CSS, Js, PHP stack, C and C++, python, R,...


That's a unique introduction, I remember the days of 56K and negotiating with the phone line. I'm glad those days are over.

How did you bridge the gap from cached JS you stumbled on, to learning about web development?


Well I just started playing with the code to see what it was doing, but I had to properly learn programming from tutorials. I read openclassrooms.com/en/ at the time :D

That looks like a great resource, I haven’t come across this one before.
