I first got into programming in middle school. My good friend made lots of cool games on his TI-83+ Graphing Calculator, and I wanted to learn to do it too, so I managed to find my older brother's old TI-83 and started learning to program it. A couple of years later, my brother-in-law gave me an old computer with Ubuntu (I think it was like 8.02 that was out then) and over the next couple of years I would occasionally mess with it. Over time I learned enough Java to call myself proficient, and I also did some C programming in my high school robotics club. During college I worked as a Python Developer for the University's Network Engineering group.
In 2019 I graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in Computer Science.
