It was the end of the 11th class, and my IT paper was about to arrive. I wasn't prepared for it at all. But then due to corona, the paper was postponed and I was sent from school(residential setup) to home. I came home and thought to myself that I will have to study for the IT exam because before that I never really tried to understand programming concepts. I searched on YouTube -- "Python Tutorial" and I found this bald guy with 6 hrs of python tutorial video with over 9 million views.

I clicked on that video -- and that click changed my life -- I followed along the whole course and within two days I completed it. At that point, I had more than enough knowledge to give my IT exam but I was addicted to programming. I built some projects in python and then I tried a bunch of other programming languages like C++, Swift, Kotlin. I also explored a little bit about game development.

Then I entered the world of web development, learned HTML, CSS, JavaScript, made websites for people on fiverr.com, earned some money, learned React.js, Next.js, Tailwind CSS, Firebase. Nowadays my main tech stack is Next.js and Tailwind CSS for the frontend and Firebase for the backend. I am making some fun projects these days using OpenAI API to build artificially intelligent bots.
