The first thing I'd consider an "app", I built to make my job easier previous to being employed as a software developer.
It was a hideous mess of "clever" php spaghetti code, although as ugly as it was, it turned 30 minutes of manual effort to build a report into a single HTML form with less than 5 minutes of runtime.
Before long my various bosses had me building functionality for them and other departments.
About 2 years later I landed my first Software Engineer job at 29 years old. Better late than never!
