I use this site because I have the freedom to ask any question (dumb or not) without feeling judged. I feel like there are occasionally things that have just slipped by that I should know, but I don't and you guys are willing to help me every little step of the way — I love you guys!
I've been learning how to program on my own since I was 8. I haven't participated in many actual programming courses, but I've managed to learn a lot on my own (and of course I've received plenty of help from StackOverflow).
In my free time I enjoy designing websites, writing server software, fine tuning my home network, and designing management software for the various systems I work with day-to-day.
