This PBS video in particular was a turning point,
When I first saw it, I thought it was the most amazing thing ever! I didn’t know coding could be used to create art!
My mind was blown with this whole ‘creative coding’ thing.
I have been hooked ever since!
A big thanks also to the people who shared books with me in the past in an attempt to get me interested in programming (even though I ended up reading only the first few pages… =) ).
