Ron Paul Curriculum, English 1, Lesson 25
Writing assignment: 500 words on major turning points in your life. What changed? Why were they turning points? How did they take place?
I also have some interesting plans for the coming year. My goal is to build something with Unity, a 3D game engine that can run on Windows, Linux, and even Android and iPhone products. I will need to learn how to use C, C++, and C#. These languages are very closely related to Java, which I have the most experience in. It’ll be fun working on this new project.
Ever since that day in 2011, I have been making things happen with programming. I have used books to teach myself how to create more and more advanced applications, from web browser games, to simple PC tools and games, to mobile applications playable on a variety of different screen sizes. Programming is a very powerful tool, one that I find very fun to use and manipulate. I wouldn’t be doing these things had my mom not discovered Khan Academy’s learning tool, and made that turning point in my life.
