My Programming Journey
How I Started Programming
I started to program in the last year of Highschool (Volksschule here in Switzerland) with webtigerjython, a web-based Python interpreter to teach children programming with a simplified version of the turtle library.
I had a lot of fun learning all the concepts and even made a game with this simple Interface. Later, I also learned Pygame and made some games with it.
Later, I got several Books by Al Sweigart and Eric Mathes, like “Automate the Boring Stuff With Python” and “Python Crash Course”.
Programming My First Real Website
So I made my first larger and Public Website in October 2021. Quuli.ch is a German quiz website where my friends and I added questions. Despite not knowing the best practices, I had much fun working on this project.
Learning, Learning, Learning …
Writing articles is rather hard, but I’m having a lot of fun, and I hope I can teach you something new!
Then, in February of 2023, I made my own WordPress Plugin to manage my articles hosted on Github as Markdown. I also created a fully custom classic theme for my Blog.
That’s not all. I have done other funny things, and I don’t know why, but they often relate to printing.
At the beginning of my apprenticeship, when I made my quiz website, I took out ads on 3 Bus Stops in my region. That was a unique experience. I designed the ad myself, and I had e-mail contact with the guy from the Ad Agency.
Thereafter I designed a t-shirt in school as part of an assignment; after the project was finished, I thought it would be a waste not to print out the t-shirt, so I went on a website that would make my design for me. Later, I also printed a second t-shirt that I designed privately.
Then, in the Summer of 2022, My Father and I designed a flag for us where all his favorite symbols, like a horse and Circus, appear. We also then ordered this design from a local flag printing Company.
In the Autumn of 2023, I started writing for a local newspaper called “Klettgauer Bote“. I’m always very proud when my articles are published.
