Hi, my name is Risan Bagja. I code for fun, seriously.
I’m passionate about coding. I enjoy spending time writing clean and maintainable code. I love building stuff. I got the thrills when seeing all of the pieces started to come together and finally working.
I started to code when I was just 14 years old. At that time I was in Junior High School and borrowed a book about Borland Delphi from my relative. I followed and practiced most of the tutorials on that book. I even still remember one of the very first programs I made: a simple rich text editor. Since then, programming became part of my hobbies.
I started to learn about web development in high school. At that time I borrowed a book about HTML and PHP from my friend. Later on, we participated in some website building contest. Luckily enough, we managed to take the first place! It was a custom CMS built using PHP.
I’ve tried various programming languages. From Swift, Python, Ruby, Java, Haskell, Go, Objective-C, Action Script, C, Pascal, Basic, even an assembly language for an 8085 microprocessor. I love learning new programming languages.
Thank you for passing by! Check out my profiles on other websites too:
