Hi, I'm TheDragonRing - currently a high school student (year 7) who lives in Australia. I love warm weather, and my favourite animals are probably lizards and meerkats. At the moment, I'm learning the basics of Electric Bass and I know a bit of piano. I am constantly getting confused by various things and my favoured pastime is reading.
Ever since I first learnt that you can write scripts that can create things like games and websites I was interested in it. The first real step I made towards this though was getting a Raspberry Pi 2. I tried to manipulate existing plugins for a Minecraft: Pocket Edition server software that I was using, but had little success. I needed to learn from someone or something else. After a bit of searching, I found some helpful tutorials online on how to make these plugins myself and was soon ready to begin, my mind bursting with possibilities and ideas. I continued creating plugins for a few months and during that time I founded a small online organisation that develops these plugins - the BoxOfDevs Team.
After a while though, I began to gravitate away from this and began to explore and quite enjoy web development. My skills are now very different to what they began as and thought I wanted them to be, but I have learnt a lot and continue to look into learning as many more programming languages as I can. Now I use Atom as my daily code editor and have been working on many projects: personal and public. Have a look at this page to see some of my work.
If you haven't noticed yet, I am completely addicted to reading (fiction novels in particular, but I'll read anything I can get my hands on). Any time I have free time, the first thing I want to do is read. It's fun, and I learn a lot from the books I read. The only time I ever successfully recorded every single book I read resulted in me reading 75 books in three weeks - that was 3 years ago, and I still don't know how I do it!
- HTML, CSS & JS: I was originally self-taught, but I have learnt a lot since then and now am able to integrate them together to make sites like this.
- PHP: I am self-taught in this, and occasionally use it for some of my projects and scripts.
