We began by learning HTML/CSS, and then went on to MySQL and PHP. With these tools we began designing websites. For the end of the year, we worked on four-person team projects. My team worked on a smorgasbord website called The Arc. I enjoyed it so much that I signed up for the second year computer science class.
In the second year class I had my first experience working with Java by making 2D games with a program called greenfoot. My final project was a two-player bomber game called: Block Tag and it won third place in the class's First Annual CompSci Game Fair.
Working on these projects was so enjoyable that, with the encouragement of my comp sci teacher, I decided to major in Computer Science and Information Technology at California State University Monterey Bay.
