About Me

Hello There! My name is Matthew Dickens. I am a Software Developer, PC Gamer, Star Wars Fan, and a Musician(playing piano). It all started when I was 9 years old when I built my first custom PC with my father. That instantiated a spark of passion in which became my love for technology. Then eventually during high school, I tried my hand at programming. On Codecademy I wrote my first "Hello World" program in in javascript. After I saw "Hello world" come across the screen, that same spark came to me again from when I built my first computer. I finally knew what I wanted to do in my life. I wanted nothing more than to become a programmer. Of the 6 years spent pursuing my career thus far, I do not regret my decision to become a programmer.
