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.
