Hello all. I'm Colin and I'm 51 - makes me a bit of a grandad here, but hey ho! I studied software engineering at uni and was a programmer/analyst for about 10 years, but then moved fairly randomly into marketing, finishing up as Marketing Director for a consumer electronics brand in the UK.
I recently decided to give all of that up to become a maths teacher (I leave my marketing job in 2 weeks), and the spare time that has given me got me looking at old interests including programming. So I looked around, decided Python looked like the right language, did the course on codeacademy, bought a couple of reference books, then Pythonista and here I am!
Very much enjoying Python in general, Pythonista in particular (the drawing modules are simply awesome), and like the look of this forum.
