I started coding back in high school. My "Computer Science" subject for grade 10 was actually an introduction to programming in Delphi. I struggled a lot and was fairly disheartened and frustrated by the time I got to the end of the book.
That changed, though, when I found an introduction to HTML in the back after all the Delphi. I was hooked! It was simple and I could see the results of my work as I did it.

I kept teaching myself over the years and branched out into other languages as I found my requirements changing.
The first "server-side" tech I learnt was asp.net with visual basic code behind.

Now that I'm working with it as a day job, I've moved over to PHP for my personal projects, so the learning continues.

When I'm not coding, I'm either playing World of Warcraft, some other game or hanging out with friends. I enjoy playing pool and ice skating as "extra curricular" activities.
