I am completing just 2.5 years in the industry as of now. Actually I have felt that the work culture of software development, most importantly the enthusiasm to work together on creating something, mixing work and play cannot find such things in some other regular job like that of a bank employee or even a civil engineer.
I was just wondering whether you have observed these things and maybe you might have noticed some reason for software development to have this kind of work culture. 🙂

I hate to break it to you man, the answer to this one isn't that the job is really the best ever. It's that you, like me, are very suited to this particular job :)

It feels great because it's the right one for you. There are others you could put into the same thing and they would feel confused, bored, overwhelmed, or a mix of other negative things.
