When I was a kid, at the age of 9, my father showed me Codecademy and suggested me to learn how to code, I didn't know why I wanted to do it really, but it just made me feel happy and I thought it would help make me smarter and I would have a fun time coding, I still remember the first "console.log('Hello World!');" that I wrote on this very site. Day by day I learnt more and more and was really fun and I never lost interest! It's a pity that where I live they don't teach much computer science in schools and if they do, it's not much with practicals, although I try to get some of my friends to code, some of them find it interesting and some of them think not. But I always found lots of interesting things to do with it.
