I consider myself to be on the fringe of the STEM fields as someone who codes HTML, CSS and occasionally does some programming in JavaScript for a living. I had two courses on Java in college, and also have had some training on PHP and SQL from a tech school, but don't use them on the job. I've considered using this knowledge to create a browser based game, but haven't gotten past the idea phase yet.

What got me into HTML, funny enough, was participating on a forum known as Anime Grape Vine around 1999 as that board used HTML to style their posts with. A nice member helped me figure out the basics of HTML when I asked a question on the help board and I started teaching myself more stuff as time went on. The earliest site I made was on Angelfire and dedicated to my an old original character I'd made for a Sailor Moon fan fic of mine - I was in middle school at the time, so this is a little embarrassing to admit lol. I ended up taking formal web classes later on, but because I'd already taught myself some stuff I was able to complete my assignments faster than most of the other students. I majored in English in college, which I do jack squat with, and seriously debated minoring or double majoring in Computer Science and not doing so is something that I kinda regret. The main reasons why I didn't was because I'd heard the tech industry isn't very girl friendly, teachings from a religion that I believed in then but no longer believe in, and my scholarship would've run out before I was able to complete either the minor or the second major as I was in my Junior year of college when this debate came up.

Anyways, that's how anime helped get me into the fringe of the tech industry.

I teach computer science and programming, so it's safe to say I'm interested in it. I know C#, C++, Java, VB, VB Script, Javascript, a little C and assembler language also. My dad was a computer programmer for nearly 30 years. I've played around a bit with Python, but not too much.

Solving problems by writing programs is fun and relaxing to me. Now if I could just come up with an idea like Angry Birds or Candy Crush, I'll be set.


It's nice finding like-minded people, honestly problem solving in general is pretty fun, getting a computer to do it for you is even better :D
THen there are the times you get absolutely stumped and want to pull your hair out but the successes are definitely worth the aggravation.

I'm going for my bachelors in computer science right now. The language that i know so far is java. I also kinda know how to use prolog because one of my professors wanted to see the class suffer and taught it with java. But besides that i'm going to start learning how to use python and C+ or C++.

I'm enrolled in STEM now, chemical engineering to be precise.

With my little bit of programming knowledge and countless summer hours I'm picking up Unreal Engine 4 since it's free and plan to mess around with that, maybe look into indie game development with some friends.. or maybe develop mobile or Facebook apps.

I used to be interested in programming, but decided to focus more on graphic design when I was younger. I'm good with photoshop, illustrator, quark etc. I don't have much interest in those things now though. I'm still relatively tech savvy, but I have little passion for it anymore. Sitting in front of a computer all day just lost it's charm, now I prefer being outdoors and seeing the world.

I have a Bachelor's in Physics B.S. Programming is occasionally useful, but I prefer to stick with MATLAB where I trade ease of programming for computation time.

Who doesn't love tech? IT fields are fantastic nowadays and growing rapidly. I work as a Cyber Security Anaylst currently and have been programming as long as some of the users have been alive here (go ahead, call me old). Majored in Software Engineering.

I was interested at one point but then i saw the routes and was just like ugh, to much work and too many people lol xD.

Same with Chemical Engineering, i got to do the course, stayed a year and just though..ugh, i have to move to another country eventually lol.

No I'm into writing and reading so I'll be a author, writer, animator, artist, and/or mangaka (manga creator)

I've got a bachelors in math and a masters in computer science and have worked in tech for around 4-5 years in varying jobs. Nothing really cool though. A bit of desktop and network support early on, heavy business application and database programming in the middle, and virtualization and datacenter stuff most recently. My interest really started in the fact that there were a lot more tech jobs out there than not to be honest. Otherwise I probably would've wound up a lawyer or an accountant or something. My mom has always been a tech herself, being a unix admin for 20 years and a database admin for 6 or so, just never really got inspired cause the work comes across as so mundane sometimes. It's especially apparent now that I've been in that role as a sys admin myself.

I wish I knew how to use MATLAB, it on my list of things I want to learn. Mostly cause Wolfram was nice enough to make a free version for the Raspberry Pi.

I turn the stuff on, it either works or doesn't work. IT for me is just a mystical giant turtle that rewards or beguiles at whim.
