Recently, I was able to sit down with Jonah Wolmark, a freshman at Village who actually enrolled in our school during the spring semester of his 8th grade school year!  Jonah is known for being very fluent in the topic of computers and video games, as well as various different programming languages, so I got to pick his game about all things ‘tech’.

What got you into programming?

I’ve been using computers basically all my life, so I’ve  been interested in computers and wanted to know how they work.

What are your hobbies?

I play a lot of video games and watch YouTube videos and i talk with my friends over Skype.

What kind of programming languages do you know and what was the first one that you learned how to use?

The first language i learned was Java and since then i learned C, C++, Python, Perl, and small amounts of other languages like PHP and HTML.

What do you see yourself doing in the future?

Some job involving writing code or IT work.

What kind of video games do you like to play and why?

I mainly play indie games and roguelikes. Some examples of games that I play are Super Meat Boy, FTL and Papers, Please.

So, if you’re ever in need of tech help or want suggestions about new video games to play, you know the man to see!
