In the mid-90s I was introduced to programming "by accident" and it has consumed my life ever since. In the mid-00s I transitioned to education and it has been my source of income ever since. In the mid-10s I fused the two together, writing software for educational purposes. Digital textbooks, student reporting tools, LMSes, and more.
Some day I would really like to open a café, offering good coffee and great baked goods for a fair price. The "simple" life ... assuming COVID ever goes away.
