I've always been a tech fan. Made my first site when I was 12, but I stopped at HTML and CSS. Now I started coding, and here I am - 24y/o studying pointers in C. I don't even php.
Am I too late? How old were you when you first started coding?

    It is never to late. I didn't really get my career off the ground until 27.

    I started learning at 12, first paid for a website at 14. but I'm an exception not a rule, while alot of people pickup programing young most don't make their money until college age or later so you're right on schedule

    I think you're never too late for much of anything in life. If you want something bad enough you will work hard and make it happen. Stay focused!

    It's never too late, especially not at your age. You've still got your whole life ahead of you.

    I was 14 - 15 when I started learning for real. (C language)

    Studied HTML at age 12 at school but it was not interesting, so I never really gave it my all.

    Html at 14.

    My background is in advertsing/art direction/graphic design.

    Always thought programming was out of reach for me, like rocket science.

    Started a real carrer at coding at 32, about 4 months ago. Boss asked me to assume the Webdesign slot and gave me a a free get out of jail card, in case things went sour.

    Learned a LOT these last 4 months, mainly dealing with Html, Sass, Js, Php, Wordpress, Twig at work. At home, I'm currently trying my hand at Unity and C#, doing my own indie game project.

    Never been so tired, but I've never been happier.
