As you’ve probably guessed already, my name is Simen. Most likely, you’ve also figured out that I’m interested in technology. Other than writing code and exploring the world of computers, I enjoy climbing, biking, walking and macro photography.
But anyway, how on earth did I end up writing code? It’s probably best to start at the beginning. Already in kindergarten, one of my friends’ parents said that Simen is “the kid who always turn the toys upside down trying to figure out how they work.”
A few years later, in sixth grade, a friend showed me how to make a simple web browser in Visual Basic. Within a year or so, I’d made loads of more or less useless apps, including a file hider and a transparent screen locker. I never followed tutorials blindly or anything, I just tried and failed, over and over, until it worked.
