re: How did you get into programming in the first place? VIEW POST


A friend of mine in middle school heard that you could cheat on the game Runescape by making software do it for you. I wanted to try it out, spend way too long trying to get some community tool working (it was in Pascal) and never did get anything substantial working. Echoing many here, I wish I would have had a mentor that I could ask questions to.

It took me another few years before I found out about a musical instrument called the monome that was completely user programmable that I got interested in programming again. Some stuff was written in MaxMSP, some in C, etc…

Currently work in Web Development and but also interested in things like parallel computing.
