Discussion on: How did you first start out learning programming?

I started out in the most mundane way, Junior High School. We only played with QBasic, but it got me interested and propelled me to take anything that our High School offered.

Now, I'm 13 years into the industry and even obtained a Master's degree.

Nice, did you learn on your own when your high school couldn't offer enough? That was the case with my high school, they had so few resources that only three or four comp sci classes offered, and led me to not want to try it.
