There are quite a few things I'd like to say here, about both plumbing and programming, but I'll just say the one:

Time spent learning programming is never wasted.

I cannot stress this enough. Even if I had not found any opportunity to work as a software developer, it would still have been a massive win.

Thanks to the engineering mindset instilled into me by just adopting good programming practices, I am now a much better a problem solver in my own field.
