I've seen quite a lot of posts on Twitter recently about how people got into coding and there are some really interesting and even wild ones, real career divergents.
'Oh yeah, I used to be a lion dentist and then just learned React and went from there'
'I won the 1998 figure skating championships but now I'm a Python architect'
...and so on.
Joking aside, I once worked with a genuine medical doctor who just pivoted into being a top sysadmin...mental!
But, my origin story is much more beige: I literally worked with computers from about 4-5 years old, learned to code and became a developer....the end.
What are some of your development origin stories? Where did you come from? How did oyu get here? Where are you going?
