I'm 19, and I started with Python when I were 13, in December 1998.

See also this usenet message, dated 29 May 1999. It's one of the very
first messages from me to the Python newsgroup. I'm not a very intensive
programmer, and I mainly do small scripts for useful purposes (I have
approx. 50 of them, one of which creates my .sig). I haven't looked
closely at other languages, although I looked a bit at Ruby. College
will teach me Java later this year.
