When you Found your Passion

Hi, there is Golden Polish Autumn outside and that is always for me time of thinking about the past. Today I was thinking about when my computer software passion started. And I wonder about the first time you sat in front of the first computer and realized that this is your life passion that turned into what you do for life after years. Everything started when I was a 7-year-old boy, and I realized I wanted to be a computer guy. I did not know what that meant and what computer guys usually do, but I want to learn that and become one of them and understand computers. Later on, I had a chance to use a borrowed PC, a 286 PC with a Turbo button, and I could not sleep the first night when I used Norton Commander in DOS 5.0 and launched and played computer games. For the first night, I played until 3 AM morning into Prehistoric 2, a great game, by the way. Looking back, my passion turns out very quickly into making profits. Usually, that was tiny amounts of money, but there were nice options to get something. In High School, I helped with operating systems and shop software installation in a friend’s shop, and after that, I got Jerzy Grębosz 5 parts books about programming in C++. I want that fee after that work to invest that knowledge into my development. That also was the first time with FPP software, the best shop-selling software in the country, made by Szymon Słupik in CDN if I remember correctly. Later my software skills gave me money for dating meals like pizza or ice creams with my beloved featured wife after I made solutions for Technical University students for projects they needed to pass at school. And later, I found my first workplace where my most valuable work was making software and selling it to company customers. But like I said, I was 7 when I decided to be a computer software professional. Am I wondering about your first decision about that? Do you remember the first time with a computer? For mu daughter computer passion seams to start already but I cannot ask her yet, because she cannot speaks yet, but knows already how to rearrange icons on my MacBook Pro desktop :).
