I began my programming journey at the age of 11. My 5th grade teacher showed me that I could save a file on notepad with another file extension than .txt! Thus began my interest in HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP, PHP GD, jQuery, SQL, C#, .NET Framework, C, C++, mobile apps, DragonFireSDK (7/10 would not use again), Objective C, and Java, in that order.

I learned only through books and the internet, which is why I asked many dumb questions years ago. I like to look back on them and reminisce on my bad programming skills and problem-solving.
