In middle school I was known as one of the computer nerds in my class. We used to sit together during breaks and after school trying to learn C++, and then somehow I stumbled into HTML and CSS instead. I had an account on pretty much every community available in the mid-90’s just to be able to create various profiles with different designs (that of course changed every week).
In school, Media was always the natural choice for me, and I really had a thing for graphics - I spent hours on photoshop/illustrator tutorials. This led to me starting on the Media Technologies programme at Malmö University where the joy of coding came flooding back to me. After my studies, I freelanced as a graphic designer for a while and noticed the frequent demand for websites. At the time I was only able to create some simple Wordpress pages, so I decided to go 'all in' on web development and signed myself up for a two year long .Net developer course. Those years flew by and at the end I got the most amazing phone call from tretton37 - I had been accepted into the apprentice programme… Oh boy! Am I lucky, or what?!
So, these days I spend my time learning, learning, cuddling with my cat, learning, watching horror movies, and then learning some more from my amazing colleagues!
