What computing means to me

Before coming to this class I was not exposed to any kind of programming or coding whatsoever, so it definitely was challenging for me at first to understand the concepts of coding and how things work in general. However, as I was getting more and more into it, I started liking what I was doing, because I started seeing connections between things we do in class and things that surround me in my everyday life. I started looking at things around me with a different perspective, things as simple as light switches and as complicated as some computer games would make me think “khm, I sort of know how to make it”, which was an amazing feeling. I am not sure if it had necessarily “made me a better person”, but I think the exposure to this new world of programming and building things in this class has changed the way I look at everyday objects and made me start appreciating them more.
