Evolution of a Web Developer: From PHP Newbie To Python Ninja.
An entertaining, quick, little read. I always find it hilarious to talk to peers and discuss how we ended up where we did today. 90% of them, like me, started programming with AOL ‘add-ons’ also known as chat room flooders, punters, and other silly tools to cause trouble for our friends. We were exposed to programming through Visual Basic and Modules that did all the hard work for us, and it was addictive.
I always like talking about those things with fellow developers, and reading this list brought back a lot of memories from my own path so far.
That describes my start in programming exactly. I miss those AOL days sometimes. 🙂
