The first language I studied formally was BASIC, back in 1984. I was 7 and my parents had bought an Amstrad CPC464 for my brother and I. It was not for playing, it was for learning and we had to take a programming class.
I finally decided that I wanted to be proficient in a language and I chose Python. So far I’ve been working on web applications through Flask, but I plan on approaching ROS through rospy and playing around with computer vision, too.
Courses and mentoring
I’ve been taking a few classes online and worked privately with two mentors.
