My JS Story Richard Feldman
Embarking into Programming
When he was around 8 or 9 years old, Richard always wanted to create games. He kept bothering his dad to enroll him in classes that would teach him to create computer games, but he would always get declined. Later his dad bought him a book titled Learn Basic Now which he didn't initially read.
Soon he got grounded from using the computer, but he managed to convince his dad not to because of the book. Since then he started to read the book his dad bought him and learned how to program. He fell in love with programming and felt doing it to be really rewarding throughout the years.
His Journey to Elm
The road to Elm covers 20 years of his life. When he started with Elm, he thought that he'd become a professional game programmer. The idea of becoming a web developer didn't cross his mind since that wasn't a career back then.
