Picture of Luke

Luke Isaiah Wilson

I started programming as a 12 year old kid, tinkering with Visual Basic on my mom's old notebook. In seven years, I feel that I have learned a lot about software development, without having taken any formal classes. I started my friends on programming, and now some of them do it as a hobby as well! Teach someone programming and positively affect their future.

"One of the least understood pieces of the open source puzzle is how so many good programmers would deign to work for absolutely no money. A word of motivation is in order. In a society where survival is more or less assured, money is not the greatest of motivators. It's been well established that folks do their best work when they are driven by a passion. When they are having fun." — Linus Torvalds (Just For Fun pg. 227)
