I started programming in 2012 at a Java+Scratch summer class for my parents to get me out of the house for a change. While what I wrote there was absolutely abhorrent, I loved the theory and wanted to pursue it further.
In 2013, I began attending SkilStak Coding Arts where I learned the essentials of Python 3, Golang, and nebulous Linux things (i.e. bash, vim, ssh, git, and so on). While I still attend SkilStak, it is more of an informal mentoring and advice meetup for help with my own, self-initiated projects.
Through a series of lucky events, I have come into possession of a server.
