When did you discover your passion for programming? Did you come to the realization at a single point in time, or was it a gradual process?
l guess I'll share mine 😜
I was working on the final project for a computer science class I was taking. I found myself spending more hours than required just to improve the program. A day or two before I turned in the project, I reflected on all the time I spend on the project. I came to the natural conclusion that I have a passion for programming since I enjoyed spending my free time programming.
And it looks like that conclusion wasn't inaccurate 😃
So what about y'all? When did you discover your passion for programming, if you found it at all?
I know this is late but I was messing around with scratch and then I realized thats what I really liked to do so I kept doing that until I found a youtube named code bullet and that got me into ai so I started learning JS, pygame and processing. But right now im learning pygame.
I discovered my passion for programming when i saw my friend making minecraft on Khan Academy. I wanted to be able to make stuff like that too, so i decided to learn how to program. I soon discovered that I found my true talent
I discovered my passion for programming when using, and learning about my first home computers in the early 1980s. I initially got a Sinclair ZX Spectrum, then a Sinclair QL, and started experimenting with BASIC and Assembly.
@PaoloAmoroso Wow, that's pretty crazy! :0 I can't imagine what it would be like to use those older computers - especially writing in BASIC with the CRT monitors. I'm trying to get into Assembly stuff right now, but I don't feel it would be as raw as doing it in the 80's, if that makes any sense.
Literally the same as yours. I went to Google and researched a lot of stuff that wasn't even taught at school. After a while, I even made some projects for my friends( I know I shouldn't have done that ) because I enjoyed it so much.
