Im 17 and in an apprenticeship doing software development (web) in London.
My first experience with programming was in school, i took a new introduced topic, Computer Science which involved alot of practical work with VB, Python and SQL which was cool as it helped me get into the position im in now.

However there arent many teachers / experienced enough people in the UK to teach Computing. Theres a real shortage... which is a shame as many young people dont get to experience Development enough to consider it as a career path.
