The first time I saw a line of code was probably mid-2009. I had just graduated from university with a business degree, and it occurred to me that I should have a personal web site. At the time, I don’t think I had a single friend who knew how to build web sites, but that didn’t matter, because I moved to China in 2009, and a friend with HTML and CSS skills probably wouldn’t have helped much, anyway. Like a lot of people do when they’re first learning about how the Web works, I found my way around using Google and brute force. After a few months, and countless hours of research and hacking (in the truest sense of the word), I launched my first web site. Knowing that I’d done it all myself with only Google as a tool felt amazing.
