English major 20 years ago saw a cool hover effect in a browser, and discovered it was done with "JavaScript". Began playing with JavaScript and applying it to both fun experiments and clients' business problems. Found out the syntax was similar to other languages, so I branched out to middle tier and backend coding. Now I've come full circle, and it's JavaScript on the backend.
