Hi! My name is Levin and I’m currently doing my 3rd Year in Computer Science & Software Engineering at Maynooth University.
What’s my story?
Back in the days, I remember playing with Microsoft Paint every day coming home after school and been pleased by what I’ve drawn. Soon after, the ‘addiction’ died away when my dad installed a car racing game. So, there is no need for me to explain what happened after that. At that young age, I saw myself as an adventurous person and I still am. But when it came to anything digital, I never really snooped around for more or dared myself to click on something that I didn’t know. The reason being, I thought I was going to break it. Years later, I came across MS Publisher and started using my creative side in designing. Similarly, that ‘phase’ only lasted until our Internet connection got fixed. I am so grateful for these software which has given me a chance to use my imagination and creativity.
Believe it or not, but my first experience with coding was three years ago because it wasn’t offered to me as a class when I was in school. I had no clue what I was getting into. Although, I did have a fair knowledge of using Scratch before entering college which provided a stepping stone to the world of algorithms. Now as I enter into my second semester of 3rd year, I believe coding is a super power. As Karlie once said, “Programming is the language of the future and of now… If a person can understand code, then they can build anything!”
Right now, I’m on a secret mission to learn amazing new stuff and also build a platform which will be revealed soon.
So, tag along on my journey from being an ordinary programmer to a full stack developer!
