We can talk to each other about our work issues in understand each other. It's been really cool. Yeah so. I think that's a perfect segue into talking about your story in how you started coating yes so. I've always been interested in electronics growing up. I didn't really have a computer access to the internet until i was a teenager. But then at that point. I was fascinated by i would frequently break my parents computer in rush to try to figure out how to fix it before they found out about it. And so that's why. I got into just learning more about computers and how they works in high school. I did some basic html and css in in notepad so i had a class where we did typed everything out in no pat on microsoft windows and was very basic. The made a website about the movie the matrix because that came out around that time and i was very into the matrix. And i didn't really do do much with programming. I went to college and i took a basic programming class. And i actually. I think it was c. Plus plus yes so. I did a c. Plus plus class. And i remember building a calculator and i. I liked it. But i didn't go on with it. My degree was actually in business. So i just. I didn't do much with programming. I had a couple of different various jobs that had nothing to do with programming Manager at a restaurant waiter. I actually taught at a high school.
