When I was in college, I recall sitting down with my software engineering professor during office hours. I was a self-taught web developer by this point, but I didn’t start learning java until I entered college. He explained to me that he started teaching his kids how to code when they were toddlers and that many of my classmates started when they were young, too. Oh, how I would have loved to have games and tutorials for coding when I was a child!
