So me. I am a high school student that loves to program and make things. My love for programming was started by my dad, who himself is an insane programmer, and a really smart guy. My first programming experience was back in 2007(I was 8 ), when my dad installed Flash MX on my computer. He installed flash on my computer just because he had another copy, and he thought that it would be fun thing for me to do. The first program I ever made(with my dad), was not your hello world program, but a program that did this:

In pseudocode:

int dog_number = 1;

while(dog < 10){
print("Dog" + dog_number + "chased the cat");
dog_number += 1;

At the time I thought it was such a dumb program. I was little, and I wanted to program games, not little programs that did apparently nothing. I wanted to do visual things, but my dad made me learn core actionscript. That did teach me an important lesson when I started to program games, as I knew the language in it's entirety when I moved on to making games. What he taught me was to learn the language, not just know enough to get by.

The first flash game that I made was dumb. It wasn't even a game. And I thought it was so cool. I made a little flash magic 8 ball. My first thing I did all by my self.

The next thing I got into was HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. After learning a lot, I tried to make a little webpage maker, that was in the browser. Long story short, I didn't think it through at all, but it did work. The web pages just looked really bad. My dad saw I was trying to make interactive web pages, so he installed WAMP server on my computer, so I could mess around with server side stuff. This was like when I was 10. PHP was really hard for me; so was SQL, and my next project that I worked on for a while was trying to make a simple forum from scratch. What it ended up being was a simple anonymous text bulletin board(I was to dumb to figure out how to make it so you could have users).
