Wow, some guys here have the means to travel to the future!! Cool!! I too want some of that action!9
I'll mention my first project that made me money. (in 2017). I got paid INR 1000 for 2 days worth of coding.
It was an information website where you could read about different pharmaceutical medicines.

It no longer exists now.4
Took a week off from my retail job, swatted up on some HTML, built the most basic About Me/Portfolio that I could.
Having no background or experience meant that I needed something to send to people when applying for jobs.
Not my 'first' but the first outside of stupid little toy projects.
I got an internship back in 2016 while I was in 11th grade. Mine was sort of a college doing community outreach, so yeah, not really impressive of an internship.
But my manager handed me a Micro:Bit. At the time, there were like 1000 in the U.S. the U.K. was brainstorming, including them in school curriculums. My manager just told me to experiment and see what I could do with it.
Minimal requirements Minimal guidance outside of ideas now and then (he had doctorate students to manage so I get it lol), so I started just doing stupid small things with the micro python, the language the minimal back then documentation reccomended, like a 'lowest of poly' crazy taxi thing.
But by the end, I hacked together some HORRIBLY written C++ to get 2 of them to communicate. 1 always powered and gets a state from the other at regular intervals. The other is powered by a hand crank and sending the direction of the crank to the other.
I forget what the end goal was. But it was fun to learn, and thinking back, I did a lot in just 8 weeks
My manager gave me the first Micro:Bit on my last day. I don't do anything with it anymore. But it's a fun memory.
It was also around that time I found DevRant and needed you guys to knock my ego down a few pegs when my head over inflated, lol.
I cloned a famous banks login page, setup a database so the credential would go into that database when a user tried to login even though it would always say failed to login. I then sold that code to a guy on telegram.8
The first coding project I ever did was a simple notes application.
It was just me looking at a YouTube video and typing everything I managed to understand in my own way.
It was helpful but wasn't practical
