What got you into programming?

Hello good people,

My name is Clark and I’m from Canada. I’m a graphic designer and photographer by profession but I’m much more into web design. So at the moment, I’m taking a break off from work in order to study and gain the necessary knowledge.

Many people have asked me why web design is so interesting to me that I’m ready to abandon such a creative position. Well, I wouldn’t really ditch it, I’d rather somehow combine and implement my current and new knowledge to come up with unique websites. But how and when did I become so obsessed with it?

Everything started sometime last year when I stumbled upon these Removed Link. For a reason still unknown to me, they appealed to me so much that I started gambling online on a regular basis. Don’t worry, I didn’t get hooked, but I did become preoccupied by the idea that I need to learn web design and start making online casinos. I know it’s a long journey, but I’m willing to learn.

And you guys, how did you get into programming? What inspired you to choose this path? Share your stories in the comments, I’d love to learn them!

it’s fun, wasting time coding, I like it, just digging, doing things, getting a result, it could be satisfactory.

Just don’t upset the gurus, they are temperal. You will see them around here and on “Discord”
THey are all MIT proffesors grown in the cave. (MIT SOMALIA and Papa Guinea)
Real monk masters if you don’t share their view you are going to iritate their already inflated ego.

I can’t believe what the keyboard has done to these people, it’s really sad to turn someone into a monster, I guess writing code is not for everyone.

So if you want to start a programming journey mister Canadian be advised, even co workers are not your friends. People that write code can be strange, but not all are like this, just watch out with these and you will be fine

The industry I am trained in, will be slaughtered within 15 years by robots and IT solutions. Human beings are primal animals without sympathy and highly competitive when in the collective scarcity mode. We are headed towards an incredibly rough 25 year period.

Most people would rather starve in desperation, than prepare before it’s too late.

Being able to command computers is a super power.

I refuse to be dragged down with the majority who didn’t act, hence, being able to utilise IT to improve my position is an ideal plan.

Threats of running out of toilet paper turned to physical fights in super markets. That was back then when things were secure and comfortable. One can only imagine what is on the horizon.

The emergency programs by governments during the pandemic will lead to super inflation and an explosion in poverty. After that, we will get the tax bill for this era.

We will eventually get used to this big shocker and adapt. Eat homegrown food, travel locally, calm down and become stronger. When that happens, I want to be on the top of the social hierarchy.

I experienced homelessness in 2015 and that was a great gift, becoming used to chaos and uncertainty. The recovery through the system in Denmark has this hidden expectation that you can’t make it in life because you were homeless. The word for marginalised in Denmark is “outcast.”
Mix that and low expectations with enabling attitudes from the system and your only choice is to wage war on your weaknesses.

2020 and 2021 have been the best years of my life. Broke, ill, unemployed, no friends. Man, I love this struggle :slight_smile:

Your friends go, never to be seen again, you just talk to them like maybe once a year online, they move to another town, country yep. They grown up and now have children, wife, family, they only have time for their family.

So i’t understandable, if you are divorced or something similar and over 40.
I agree, coding could be a good hobby to keep your mind sharp so it does not develop paranoia and alzimer, or who knows what as you pass 40.

It’s when you develop these things, when your mind looses focus and starts producing non sense.
Got to keep preocupied to take care of your mind and brain. As they say use it or loose it.

You are right about the robot thing, I want to get good but look at GPT 3 it can write anything.
You are just going to have supervisors of the robot coder and maybe one programmer to take care of the robot if he breaks down or needs updating.

Soon there will be just robot software to write code and anyone will be able to do it, and of course what ■■■■■■ me off, they will say “I’m a software engenier” because I tell the robot what to do.
