I first got into programming when I was very young. I was about 13 when I picked up notepad and built my first website. Coincidentally it was the same time I first learnt about Ubuntu and Bitcoin. I made a bootable Ubuntu USB and used that to bypass restrictions on school computers by booting into Ubuntu rather than Windows. Back to the website; it was very basic and had no functionality at all. Skip forward a couple of years and it got to the point in my ICT lessons at school where we were learning Scratch and then moved onto Clickteam Fusion 2, this was where I really started to like game development. Skip forward another few years to college and I was in IT realising that I wanted more than basic computer functionality and Excel spreadsheets, I wanted to build!
So I left college but had trouble getting into other courses as I hadn’t gotten the required previous experience and knowledge so I did the smart thing and taught myself. I taught myself everything I currently know. I restarted with websites, building a few from the ground up with HTML, CSS and PHP
