Gediminas has been computing since before computing was even possible for amiture programmers. His first memory of computers was loading games onto a system using audio tapes, and his first programming language was Pascal. He learned to code in a rather unusual way- his school didn‘t have any computers so his class would write algorhythems on paper and turn them in to the teacher. But this humble start fostered a love of complex code, sophisticated calculations, and high volume data, and if not working in IT, you would likely find him working as some sort of engineer.
You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.
