Began programming when my uncle (then an engineer in Microsoft's Visual Studio team) gave me a copy of VS and a book on VB6 when I was 10. I got more interested in programming when I was 16 and began to use free software and learned Python.
My experience has been mostly in some personal scripts, some web apps, mostly in Python, often with Django, and a bit of Java and C++ from university.
