I'm taking a pulse for this community. Technically, my first programming language was LSL from Second Life which led me to learn PHP and then catapulted me into front end Development. Who here has a similar story? Learning to code from a game?

I learned to code about 12 years ago with BYOND (Build Your Own Net Dream). Nice little games community/framework. The scripting language is fairly unique but has some similarities to Python. I was able to find games that had the source code released, make small changes and see them happen right in the game.

Can't say I share your path, but that's a cool trajectory!
