11 years ago, at a meetup in NYC, a guest demonstrated connecting Flash via a USB microcontroller bridge to a bunch of motors and lights.

It was pretty neat. We were digging it.

Then during the Q&A, this guest, who was in his fifties or sixties, told us offhandedly that he was actually a classically trained musician who'd only known how to program for about *six months*.

It's never too late to learn, yes. But also, you never know how far learning can take you! 🤩

@rezmason I'm a professional software engineer and I probably wouldn't be if I never decided to take a CS for non-majors class on a whim
