What was your inspiration for learning to program?

My inspiration was the creations that I saw that other companies or people had made, such as software or video games, and I wanted to be able to do those sorts of things, and to be able to create whatever I wanted.

To automate the boring stuff and to be able to build a "brain prosthesis" to help me to remember lots of facts.


i want to create fancy graphics. "the only thing i have created so far is a rectangle svg shape with the path" ๐Ÿ˜ญ


Programming is a passion and it is an art that shows how creative you  can be and this feel kept me aloof from quitting also I wanted to become  as good as them who have inspired me a lot. For me programming and learning about Computer Science is everything, its life. I never knew that there was a programmer in me. Even the day before taking admission to a university, I never knew I had to do Graduation in Computer Science and I thought of Studying mechanical enginnering. But I don't know why but I took Computer Science and that was a best decision I ever made. I live for programming and I want to promote Computer science to the hearts of all and as much as I can. Whenever someone has some confusion with programming then I devote myself to make them understand as much as I can, to make them better at it. I am learning yet and I am inspired by others who are far far far better than me with the goal that someday I will be as good a them or even better than them. Programming taught me to be sincere focused and more importantly made me feel who I am and what I want to be in the future :)


Just be sure that I exist in this world and I can do something good.


I was inspired by the idea of creating mass worlds in which you could choose your own path and be able to tell a narrative no one has heard of in a game before.


didn't really have an inspiration. I just saw the app on plays tore and I was bored so I installed it but was confused so I checked what programming language to start with. right now I can say without exaggeration that programming has changed my life. I mean I finally found something that I enjoyed learning. I'm not saying I'm very good tho. in fact I'm very far from that but I really can't believe I didn't think of this before ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†


I'm a Chinese girl .My parents love me and want me to marry someone soon after I finish my university, so I will be protected forever. But I don't desire for the popular girls life, like drinking coffee, chatting for a million years and be an unkonwn angel. I want to try sth different so that I can find my personal value. I love solve problems, its just like magic. My parents didn't believe that, so I shave my hair clear to start my new life. Now I'm wearing wigs everyday, its even better than I thougt. I can change my hair casually and won't waste time in take care of it. I try to do anything that I interested in and won't hurt my health.I hope I can go to America and work as a programmerโ—•โ€ฟโ—•


I am agreed with you Jayden. sometimes, i got motivated by youtubers sharing their experience to me, and seeing the real life being a programmer or developer, its seems fun to me...


Anodyne09 I once got fired as a temp! I was given three months work. I wasn't told it was three months work. Wrote code to speed up the three months to 4 hours. Told my boss. She said it was impossible, as it was three months works. I was polite, but seemingly too hard working. I later realised they feared having their jobs replaced!


I am inspired by web development.


I love video games. Have ever since I was a kid. But I never thought I could make them myself. Iโ€™ve always been creative, so music, art, and writing have taken the focus of most of my life, but video games have always been the thing Iโ€™m most passionate about. As soon as I started learning C#, I hit the ground running. I was starting to design my first game halfway through the curriculum and I eventually forced myself to stop because I was making things WAY too hard by not knowing all the tools and shortcuts you learn later on. Now, with this app, I can take all the artsy experience I have, and finally bring my game ideas to life!


I love the whole idea of giving instructions to a machine and understand the complexity of its behaviour The more I learn coding the more I fall for it. Every piece of code I write and every feature I implement helping people to make their lives easier pay it all off


Anthony Clanagan what is the VA short for?


my inspiration for learning programming is that when i saw my first video game i was so curious to see how that was made and who it and one last thing if my father walk in the society , people starts talking that his son is a briliant programmer


I love to learn programming languages my inspiration is my interest itself.


Asmaa Chan thanks a lot for your kind ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ˜Š


to make this world better :)



with a university professor we wanted to write a book about food additives. Now he has the first symptoms of Alzheimer's and we think that better than a book that will be a reference guide, you can make an application for Android. So, I am learning with a presencial course, YouTube and solo learn.


My inspiration came from a computer teacher I had in high school. He had us do a project where we had to create a simple website using weebly.com and it was definitely fun for me to show off my creativity! I wanted to learn how to build an actual website from the foundation up. Ever since I started learning coding I feel much smarter and now have more of a crystal clear view on what coding is all about.
