    when I finally understood:

    "Code to an interface"

    Regex.

    The AH-HA moment was when I successfully wrote my first regex on a whiteboard.

    It's small but when I discovered how to use for loops for the first time with arrays, never yelled out in surprise so loud in my life....

    The biggest for me was Object Oriented Programming, in general.

    I started out on a C64 (non-structured / procedural), and I pretty quickly understood low level operations for generating sprites and waveforms.

    Then I eventually moved to Javascript and Haskell, Python and a little PHP.

    The whole concept of classes with methods and variables just didn't make sense to me for a very long time, coming from a Functional/Procedural background.
