When I was 15 I found myself having to decide which course to attend. In my city , all technical institutes proposed courses that I did not like and I found it not so interesting. At that age already I programmed in C and C++, and I looked out on the world of Linux. In my life I have always been self-taught perhaps by nature or perhaps because my father got the brilliant idea to put in front of my face a PC monitor when I was only 6 years old and thanks to a great curiosity , I wrote my first code at 11 years old with the help of a friend, developing a little game for PowerBBS in the form of plugin. Studying has never been a problem but I had no chance to do it at university. I do not consider myself less good than many other people. I just swapped the study with the experience. Being self-taught is not to be considered a handicap, but as an added value because the being self-taught is something that stays forever instead of simple notions and concepts. I could cite many known people who were self-taught but I think it is sufficient to cite only one: Leonardo Da Vinci.
