Start in Programming
Will comes from a family of doctor, but his grandfather was a software developer. He remembers how his grandfather showed him how to launch games. He just wanted to play that time.
It was only when he reached high school that he got serious with programming. He initially took his computer class because it counted as a business credit. He enjoyed it in the long run.
In high school, Will learned how to build small apps and webpages. He it took it even seriously when he reached college.
That time, he became interested in Japanese translation. So, he took a Japanese Language class, a Japanese History class, and an Anime Film class. He also took a CS class because he thought he'd need a real job too.
A Challenging Field
Will initially did not understand Java. He only knew that he can type in codes, and it will act according to the instructions provided.
At the end of the class, they made a frog game. The class wasn't that easy, yet he ended up taking two majors.
