How it all started

With programming as a hobby it only makes sense to make a job out of it. Having my first computer at age 6 (for playing games of course) I learned my way around both the hardware and software side.

At age 12 I started to get interested in making my games, so I rented a book from the library about Java and got working on a (simple) chess game. A couple years later I learned about PHP and started focussing on learning the code by simple adding and removing lines of code from existing codebases to see what it did and when it would break.
