Learning from the Books
Roy started in web programming in the late 90s. At an early age, he used to ask his mother to buy him a book about HTML. He no longer remembers why he was so interested.
During weekends he'd work on his Pentium computer and learn HTML. He's been in the industry for many years, and has always worked on codes.
Not By Age or Time
He recalls running a meetup group for WordPress. There he met a lot of programmers who started later in life. Unlike him, they were already either working or doing something else when they entered programming.
“I'll talk to people who are like in their 50s or 60s,…and I'm clearly like half of their age. But, that's how it is.” -Roy Sivan
Nowadays, anyone can learn how to code conveniently. Back then, Roy had to style everything by tables. Regardless of age or time, anyone interested still have space in the industry.
An Open Field of Opportunities
Roy shares that anyone can still venture into programming. There's always a lot of new websites or projects to work on. According to him, clients change overtime and the clientele are completely different.
“There is always a new realm that you can tap into.” -Roy Sivan
You can join meetups by popular consultants. There's just so many areas available that you can dive into and specialize in, such as internet security.
