Start of His Coding Journey
Just like how any kid of his age did, he got so fascinated with Pokémon. When he learned using the internet, he found out that it had a lot of Pokémon stuff in there. He then started to learn everything about the game such as stats, levels, and strategies. That interest led him to know about HTML, CSS, PHP, and a lot more. Valeri was around 9 or 10 when he got started with PHP and HTML. His parents bought him a book on HTML which he read from cover to cover. When he reached high school, he remembers participating in algorithms contest. In college, he then majored CS and realized he was going to be a nerd for life.
