I learnt to code when I was 10 years old.
I remember the first time I ever typed a line of code was when I went to my first computer lab.
It was a big, ugly box with a keyboard and a mouse.
It took me weeks to get it up and running, and when I did, I spent hours doing my best to keep up with the keyboard and mouse.
There was no keyboard.
It wasn’t even a mouse, just a bunch of plastic plates with rubber pads on them.
I remember my first big project was the “Googles word-processor” from the 1970s.
My teacher had me take apart the hardware and rebuild it to make a small computer.
I did it and it was fun.
I had never done anything like that before.
That was the start of my love for programming.
I was in love with computers, so I decided to pursue my degree in Computer Science from University of Waterloo in 1985.
In my first year, I was studying Computer Science, but my professors didn’t believe I would ever finish.
They said it was a waste of time, that I would only graduate with a computer science degree.
I’m still not sure if that’s true, but I still wanted to finish.
I wanted to learn to program.
I had no clue what a computer was, and I had no idea what it was for.
It turned out to be the ultimate computing device: a computer that made your life easier.
That is when I decided that if I wanted a career, I needed to start learning to code.
That’s when I became a student.
I would walk into my first office building in Toronto and I would see people learning to program, even though they weren’t actually doing any work.
I realised it was something that everyone could do.
My first coding project was on an iPad app called Code Monkey.
My team of four would build a basic word-processing app and then we would sit down to write the code.
It would be a huge task, but it was easy, and it wasn’t too much of a work on my part.
I think my first job was on a project for the CBC.
I didn’t know what I was doing, and the people I was working with didn’t either.
I spent so much time working on it that it was hard to keep a straight face.
Eventually, I left to join a new startup, which is why my current job is so much easier.
I’ve been able to make good friends because I know that everyone wants to be a programmer, and that’s why I’ve chosen the path of a programmer.
I started as a developer, but then I moved into a more technical role.
I moved to Silicon Valley, where the people are so tech-savvy and have access to so many resources that I’m able to start new companies that are not only small, but also have a huge impact on society.
I’ve seen the benefits of being a programmer in many different ways.
One of the biggest benefits I’ve seen in my life is when it comes to learning new languages.
I don’t think I’ve learned to code by accident.
I believe I learned to program by getting myself into a better place.
The next benefit is the freedom that comes with a strong computer science background.
When you’re learning a new programming language, it’s very easy to get distracted by things that are trivial.
For example, you could do a quick Google search, and immediately start getting distracted by all the cool stuff that people are doing in that language.
But that’s not what I wanted.
I needed the experience of programming to help me build my career.
I like programming because it’s challenging and I love the challenge of making my own code.
I love being a nerd and learning to create code that’s unique.
I want to be an innovator, but not just because I want a career in tech.
I also love that I have an interest in programming and learning new things, and coding is something that I think every person should do.
