I love playing around with computers, and have, from an early age. My first introduction to programming was HTML on Neopets, when I was about 8. Although I moved on from Neopets fairly quickly, I didn't move on from the joy I felt coding this HTML.
I became unsatisfied with batch files, and moved on to learn "proper" coding languages. I can't remember what happened from there, but I learnt many different languages. I know have a working knowledge of PHP, Ruby, Python and Java, and I can find my way around computers fairly easily. I'm currently in the process of learning about different web frameworks. I've come full circle, it seems!
Away from computers, I really love music. I've been playing piano for about 7 years, and had great successes in piano exams. I'm also learning trumpet, which I'm not too bad at, and I have been an active member in various choirs over the years, and still am one now.
I am also an avid reader, and love to read fantasy stories. I'm a fan of the Bartimaeus books (the name of the author escapes me), and the Septimus Heap books, by Angie Sage. I love the Skulduggery Pleasant books, and Artemis Fowl books are a favourite of mine, however I didn't like the most recent one as much.
