About

“…so long as I live, I must have a student’s inquiring mind and thirst for learning.” ~ Gandhi

What I’ve discovered is that learning new skills is an enduring wellspring of excitement that’s challenging to find elsewhere. I have created this blog to encourage others to go and explore and enjoy the same thrills I get from learning a new language or improving my programming skills.

If you’re new to the site, you should have a look at some of the pillar posts that introduce you to the basics. If you want to read more about the history of this blog, find out why I started this blog.

Self-Learner is edited by Eric Nishio (@ericnishio). I’m a European-born Asian half-blood who taught himself how to program web applications. That hobby eventually became my full-time profession. I also love to read books, play guitar, study languages (especially Chinese), and play video games.
