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

"I was always considered the 'technical one' at home growing up. This meant setting up TV's (VCR's, if anyone remembers those!), Stereos or just anything that was plugged in or took batteries. In general, I have always loved learning and understanding how things worked. I did a HTML course when I was younger but when I wrote my first 'Hello World' in Java, I knew this was where I wanted to be."
