I wish I knew how welcoming the tech community really was. I hid most of my projects and rarely interacted with anyone so it felt isolating. But now i'm active on social media, blogs and I build in public.

It changed everything and I have so many new friends and work opportunities coming my way.

That programming was a good career fit for me. I was more focused on becoming an aerospace engineer at the time.

I taught myself to code at 15. I did it to automate my math homework and mess around in class. Laters made some basic games in C++. I never took it seriously as a career until 5 years later. I wish I had but it all worked out either way.
