When did you know that you wanted to work in tech?

I got hand-me-down devices from my older brother that wouldn’t run very well, and in the process of learning how to make my laptop run faster than turtle speed, I discovered the concept of an operating system and that there are other options. I learned about Linux and open source software and decided that I wanted to create useful software that’s freely available. I have since come to love the idea of being able to make anything from scratch.
