I'm interested in what got everyone into programming, sometimes the stories are quite interesting. For me it's rather simple. Back in the day when I was just a little numnut playing Runescape I spent days into that beautifull world playing and completely sucking at every single aspect of it. When moparscape (cheated runescape) came out, I got absulutely addicted and i've been in that scene for years and years on end. Eventually I became a moderator on such a server, and was eventually promoted to admin and then co-owner. Then when problems started to come from the server, I was absolutely worthless so I decided to open the files of the game (coded in java) and I started messing with (a copy of the server) them until some things clicked. I slowly learned to do small things and it got me interested in all this code, with time I learned more and more and before I knew it I was rather decent at coding. I've been doing it every since and I absolutely love it. And the great thing from teaching yourself from scratch is the huge amount of mistakes you make. When other developers are stuck on a bug, I usually figure out what it is because i'm (thanks to my newbie self a while back) used to looking for dumb mistakes and simple fixes in places where others wouldn't look. Eventually I decided to take an official course in it, and that's where i'm at now!
