re: What was THAT moment you understood you wanted to become a dev? VIEW POST


The summer between middle school and high school, I participated in an EMSI program. I can't remember the name of the language or software, but I remember making a little turtle draw lines on the screen. That was my first experience with anything related to coding. Once in high school, I signed up for a programming class where I learned Java. I made a mad libs like program, just text in a command prompt. I enjoyed writing short stories then, so I would write silly ones and have my classmates fill in some blanks. The excitement that generated made me want to pursue creating programs that people would use and be equally excited about.
