At the age of fourteen, I started programming basic websites, experimenting with CSS and HTML. I realised that with these skills alone, I could only create static pages - nothing truly awesome. I ventured into PHP when version 5.2 saw the light of day (around 2009). Ever since then, I've been developing sites.
Computing (Computer Science)
With this two year course, I learnt a lot of theory. I looked into the computer concepts (Fetch-Execute Cycle, and so-on) which helped me greatly with my on-going adventure - programming. The theory that the course taught me allowed me to optimize the code I wrote to not only run faster, but keep resources at a low.
In the second year, we looked into Visual Basic (2010 Edition) to create our projects. I liked the syntax of it, however, I wanted to spend the time to escalate my skills with PHP - that being my primary web language. I approached my teachers, asking if I could do my computing project using PHP and MySQL(i) instead of Visual Basic and SQL, to which they accepted. I decided to create an e-commerce system.
I.T (Information Technology)
Running in parallel with the Computer Science course, I took Information Technology, which again, was a two year course. In the first year, we learnt a lot of theory, which helped me greatly with programming, and general computer knowledge.
In the second year, we looked into creating a system using Microsoft Office Access 2010, with a relational database, and many forms to aid the running of a chosen local business. I chose a local restaurant, and created a stock control system.
Business Studies (BTEC Level)
Running in parallel with my other courses, I took Business Studies (which I took at GCSE level, too) for two years. We had a lot of theory to learn, which was aided by practical activities.
