Hullo, my name’s Jono! I’m actually pretty new to the programming world. So let me initally plead ignorance. I read articles from brilliant people, who have way more development and life experience than I do. Sometimes I disagree with them, I’m sorry. I will likely be wrong.
I started doing programming (a bit) at the end of ~2009, with my first university class I accidentally took.
A note when reading my posts I am fairly concentious now, though this if from training not natural intuition. So if I come across as insensitive, or in some way daft, please forgive me and let me know. I’ll add it to my training set.
Pretty much the whole time I’ve been in school, and I started workin in the industring around 3 years ago. It’s been a wild ride. I didn’t ever consider computer science, I mean what is that anyways?
Quick story of my life:
