I've been working various IT jobs and side-gigs since my early teens, and got the itch to develop software after looking at the "Police Quest I" binaries (i.e. "type pq.exe" which got an output roughly like "MZ^C") and knew then and there that I wanted to understand what those crazy symbols were, and how to know which to put where (hadn't even heard of the term "compiler" or "linker" yet).
I am now a full time developer who just loves to learn about and play with new technologies, and looking to learn by any way possible, including helping others.
