After a few long days and nights of hacking, I've decided to finally do something this this blog that I've put together thanks to Google Domain's awesome abilities to connect a blogger blog in with a already-purchased domain. Anyway, I figured I'd kick off with a question that I think is on a lot of people's minds. Why hack? Since I took my first programming class at the University of Iowa College of Engineering, Engineering Problem Solving II, I have been very interested in programming. I found out that programming was my forte and it really just clicked. While that was my first time formally programming with logic and things like that, I have been a computer user for a long time. When I was a kid, my dad was fortunate enough to have access to a computer where I learned how to type...and play video games.
