What was your first language and what did you make with it?
Me... I learned some rudimentary HTML & CSS on Neopets and made a fan site for MTV TRL veejay Jesse Camp, who was my celeb crush at the time. (Bonus points for anyone old enough to remember him.) I think that counts, right?
My first language was ProcessingJS on Khan Academy (which I highly recommend learning if you like making games). The first "real" thing I made was a game called "Boxx", which was a maze/action game where you controlled a square while avoiding red rectangles. Since I was new to programming, there is no actual collision detection for the rectangles. If you want to take a look at it, here's the link: https://www.khanacademy.org/computer-programming/boxxfixed/5596682905059328
C++, used it in a coding contest, I just wanted to win and go to Japan. Didn't really make anything just solved coding challenges.
@RoylatGnail the government, the patriarchy, whatever you want to call it. The first four people in the country were meant to go International, I was 3rd place and the only female contestant . I was super excited then I get called up to a meeting and I’m told that there’s no funding for me to go
The first thing I made (that I still remember to this day) was a modification for Minecraft in Java and after that I started to love programming
Me: KhanAcademy... Because I thought it was so cool... Then I gave up until making a CYOA (choose your own adventure). Something around those lines. Then my friends introduced me to repl.
I am wanting to learn some other languages, but I'm not sure which ones yet.
When I was 8 or so, my Dad, who knew programming, helped me make a program where you could enter the name of an animal and it would give you information about that animal.
It was in swift, on Xcode. I didn't understand much since I was young, new to programming and it referenced lots of complex terms that I knew nothing about, but at least I did do a program.
I remember showing it to my relatives, feeling very proud of it, but looking back, I think they felt quite underwhelmed - I had done a massive build-up prior to showing it to them, but the actual thing was... mediocre and average.
My first language was TI-BASIC. It's basically QBASIC made for TI calculators. I made a lot of programs to solve algebra formulas and equations for me, and I also made a cookie clicker game.
My first language was Python and the first thing I did with it was, well, copy GitHub games on Python and change them to be different. Like with the game Snake I made it so that I started as a single head without the body. Fun! No collision with myself then...
I mean i learned basic programming concepts from things like Scratch, but the first actual language I used was JS, and i never got past making text based adventures with it (and didnt really do much with that either)
Python, I used to play around on our raspberry pi and the first actual project I created (With my dad, this was a while back), was a guess the number game.
aaah the memories of python 2.5
I first tried to learn Arduino, but got scared and ran to Scratch for about a year. Then I got bored and found my way into JS. I now am working in front-end HTML and back-end Nodejs.
Edit: Even before Arduino, I mastered NXT coding language, but it didn't do me much. After/During Scratch, I got into TI-BASIC as well, but left it for the same reason as I left Scratch
