I made my first site during the summer of my 5th grade... the site i made was hideous, did nothing useful, nor was it very organized. I didn't really get into to web developing until the summer of eighth grade.

I created mine when i was 9. It was called coolsurf... cos I was cool and i was surfing xD lol Literally was just a general website with things I liked etc. More a blog without the blogposts. Had a forum and things. It was built on what is now known as webs.com but used to be called freewebs.com. I am now 22 :D and building websites for a living... although no longer on webs! ;)

The last time I programmed was over 30 years ago using "Assembly Language" and Fortran/Cobol.

No desire to program again....
Sorry "die hard" programmers....but, that means there is more fun to be had by you :-)

I did make my first web site using Frontpage and now use Expression.
GUI based web site development tools meet my personal needs.

I have even used Weeby.com which is easy and great (even though functionaly is limited).

About 22 years ago, built with very simple HTML and accessed the site using a browser called Mosiac.

at 15-16, there was no web, to build sites on
I had a functioning darpanet address, but it was text only, and only useful for cable-like messages

I have a few now

My kids, "yeah our generation has all this stuff, Smartphones,the internet, impressive stuff".

Me, "What are you going to make to impress your kids, my generation made all the stuff"

About 30- (15+ years ago). Late starter with just html and the beginnings of css, ssi and "wtf is that" (incomprehensible perl). Addictive as hell though :) Took all day to load up a page on my dial-up.
