I would say that it was when I got my first taste of coding around the mid 1980s on a MicroBee then Amstrad. My career went down another (IT) path but I'm getting back now with a little coding for work. Considering how to get more involved in coding again.

You must be from the UK :) Its good to connect with another dev who remembers the '80s! lol btw I did the same: started in tech and stopped to raise a family. It was a challenge to find the resources to update my skills but not impossible. It's easier today. Good luck!
