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.

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 :)

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 😆😆

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 programmer◕‿◕

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 love video games. Have ever since I was a kid. But I never thought I could make them myself. I’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 I’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

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.
