Figured I'd let the community know me considering I'll be here for quite some time, lot of learning to do.

Name's Andy, I'm 15. I've been coding for a few years in a few languages: C, Obj C, PHP, AS, CSS..

I have a lot more to say, and will edit when I have the time, but as for now.

Nice to meet you all.

I always like to give an intro on a forum first wherever possible, so here goes!

My name is Mark.  I am 28 and from England.  I am a Computer Repair Technician.

I studied VB.net, and had early experience with various versions of BASIC and machine code.  Whilst I have known HTML for a long time, I'm kinda throwing myself in at the deep end with PHP!

I like video games, movies, theatre, pool, music.. pretty much all to an extreme!  I collect video games and arcade machines, go to the cinema several times a week, play in a pool team and have my own project recording studio!

Hello, My name is Ryan.

I am 7 and married with 2 children.

My life is boring, and I sit around doing nothing 90% of the time, most people would think watching paint dry would be more fun. It is winter here, so I guess that I have some say, but once summer comes, then activity starts! Not really, basically I hang out at my friends house and he works on his car, or we just sit, or drive around and listen to music.

At night we party (Smoke, Drink, Get High, Eat Food, Play Pool, Play PS3) I don't do any of those except for the last 3. Finally around 3-4 I go home and we do it again the next day.

One day we decided to make a video of us sitting around. It was basically 1 hour 30 minutes of us doing nothing, except sitting, making prank call to random numbers, running across the street and back... and that is about it. (EXCITING!)

I would say that when I first moved to my current home, I was 5, and I know I was mean, but it was so fun, so I have a great short story to tell:
Me and my friends didn't like this one kid on our block, so when he wanted to play with us we didn't want him to so... we said "OK" He was so happy and his eyes got big and sparkled, so he ran home (he had to tell his mom everywhere he was) to tell his mom, and while he did that, we went to someone else's house. When he got back he noticed we were gone, and at someone else's house, so he went back home to ask his mom if he could go over there, and while he was gone, again we went to yet another house, and when he came back he noticed we were gone again, and this continued until he stopped coming back.

One more good story:
Me and my friends decided to sell cool-aide so we "Made" some. Because we wanted to be mean, we decided not to use water from the house. I had 5 ducks, and they had a small swimming pool filled with water, that they would always poop in.... I bet you know where this is going, any ways we used that water to add to our cool-aide mix, and we mixed it up and sold it for 25 cents a cup.

OK, now more about me.
I have worked with the web for 6 years now, and most of that was HTML/CSS.
HTML/CSS - 4 years (before college 10 grade maybe)
PHP/MySQL - 3 years (beginning of college)
Javascript - 3 months
ASP.Net VB - 2.5 months (this semester)
Visual Basic - 7 months (2 semesters ago)
Python - 3 years (beginning of college)
Pascal - 4.5 months (in high school)

I like performance cars more that luxury cars, or "Average" cars
I own a Pontiac Trans Am (Firebird) I haven't had it long enough to do too many mods yet, but I do have some of these:
- Cold air intake (adds about 8hp)
- Pioneer Deck
- Pioneer Premier 12" Sub
- Hifonics 2000 Watt RMS (3000 watt max) amplifier
- This year plan to get computer chip (adds about 23hp)

- I live in Minnesota, so the winter is almost over (yey), and to days high... 40 degrees (Fahrenheit)! For those of you who think that it is below 0 24/7, your 100% WRONG!!! During the summer it is usually 90 - 115 degrees (Fahrenheit) then there is the humidity...
- My birthday is July 22, 1986 (21 yrs.)
- Single
- Live with parents

So... That is about it....

B.T.W. StarCraft is the best game ever invented even if it is 10 years old, I am currently addicted to it. (Can't wait for StarCraft 2 to come out!!!!!!!!!). I don't play any other game... I'M 100% Serious! (free web games don't count)

Well bye (Call me xxoo)

Name's Ben, 14 years of age, and I know (X)HTML, CSS and PHP. I have been coding in PHP for about a month now, only just hopped onto PHP ;). My main interests are computing, programming, Web Development and playing batminton. Reason I picked PHP is that's the first language I was introduced to, I understood it - and went from there.

I'm Charlie, 22 years old studying Biology at the University of Southampton in the UK. But my true love is coding... entirely self-taught (started with html aged 14), and now branching from my comfort zone of XHTML, CSS and PHP/MySQL into the world of Javascript and AJAX.... Then what next?

Madly trying to make my hobby pay for itself, I write the occasional website for friends/family, and am about to launch a tutorials/resources website for newbies (cos hey, I learnt for free after all!). And yes, I know there are already far too many of them, but why not?

Oh, and I love to travel, learn languages (other than programming ones) and am not married or have kids (that I know of!).

Next please...

And he has been creating web pages for 20 years, but only known HTML for 12. Quite impressive I must say. Or just a bunch of BS perhaps...

26, never been married (but close).  I grew up in Cali, playing sports and surfing.  Started a computer repair company, but got so big that I had to hire a few techs.  Now they do my repair work for me.  Now I'm a full-time coder.

Hi!

I don't really see any introduction thread around here so I'm guessing this is a good thread to introduce myself, as so many of you more or less already did :)

I can already see i'm one of the younger ones around, i'm a dutch 23 year old guy working in Brussels (you know.. Belgium.. ). I have a canadian wife and erm.. well that's about all I can say.

I came here hoping to find an active developers community with a nice "community-feeling" all-round..
I'm on a couple of other developer forums but either they are too big to give a damn or too small to keep you interested.

Hope to have a nice time here :)

wow I've been at this forum for a long time and still
haven't introduced myself!

I'm 17 years old and live in the bay area.
For as long as I could remember I've wanted
to be a pilot and now that I have a job I've
decided to save up so I can get my pilots
license. Pretty much all I do is work, go to
school, hang out with friends, and when I'm
at home I go on here, I guess coding has
become a hobby of mine.

About a year and a half ago I got into trouble
and was forced by my parents to stay home
and not go out into the streets, and so I had
nothing to do but go on myspace all day. I
started wondering how people changed there
pages and added different colors and stuff.
I started looking it up and thats when I got
introduced to CSS and HTML. I started playing
around with it and soon got pretty good at it.
I signed up to a free web host (bravenet.com)
and made a few practice websites to test my
skills. Later on I wanted to do more "advanced"
stuff and thats when i got introduced to PHP.
I have been coding in PHP for about a year now.
Along the way I have also learned javascript/AJAX,
how to organize data with XML, and I want to
start doing flash too but programs such as
Adobe Flash are too expensive and I would
rather save up for my pilots license lol

*Stands in the crowded room, and waits for the hush to fall*
"Ahem,... Hi. My name is Sel, and I am addicted to coding"
-- *chorus of voices...* "Hello Sel..."
haha

I guess I better introduce myself if I plan on being involved in this community.
The following will roughly establish my age...
I Majored in Computer sciences when in school, graduating with extra post ed creds. (about the time when the mac was introduced.)
I then traveled internationally a lot, and for several years didn't touch a computer. Got back into them, but by that time the internet was well established  :o, and everything I knew before was now completely useless for me.  :'( (pascal? is that ever used anymore?)
So, I took it upon myself to teach myself the foreign concept of internet protocol and languages (took me no time for HTML) and started back into primitive programming for website design.
Slowly over the years I have been able to fine-tune my skills, and had introduced myself to various languages, but then dropped the whole coding world for a few years when I got into the graphic world and became a Photoshop junkie. (still have yet to teach myself Flash...) but now I am back into the coding world. The one that I am liking the most and want to hone my skills with is PHP with MySQL. I remember about 6 years ago stating to myself (where ASP was everywhere) that PHP is the language of the future (and maybe I am a bit biased with my whole 'Open Source / Share the Knowledge' mentality)
It sure has changed since I first had a gander at it.
I have some special skills in other fields that I might be able to help with. (Dreamweaver 4 -> CS3 ... Same thing with Photoshop (8 through CS3)
I now currently reside in Mexico, but I am originally from Canada. I love to travel, and working on my third spoken language.

Please to meet you!
