    I have thought about learning to program for years, time to stop thinking about it and just do it

    My brother was the reason why I took computer science. He made this really great impression of being a great programmer, and he still is a great programmer. I wasn’t able to fulfill that dream, but I guess it’s not too late for me to go back and hug that profession. It’s my first love anyway. <3

    I started accessing computer from the age of 7. It was fun to operate small television like computer. As now technology has upgraded that device too. There are many changes due to technology. In today’s generation we do not have to say any kid to access computer as they do it themselves, the reason is that they are very curious to operate that and are more knowledgeable too in that. Even i have seen many school teacher learning computer basic till today also to update themselves in this technology world.

    These days, children are exposed to computers at a very young age, not like yesteryears.

    So, ZK, at what age did you get your first computer?
