re: Why do you code? VIEW POST


I've been coding for 23 years now, with some interruptions for management positions. For some reason the market thinks a good programmer will make a good project manager, until I find some other job that will pay me the same to do actual work.

I code because I, just like y'all, see the abstract world as well as other people see the concrete world, and the former is way more interesting and deserving of beauty. And coding is my way of interfering with this world, making things right, creating order, poping things into existence. It's like walking through some place and realizing that a wall has some missing bricks, and creating those bricks. And the complete wall gives me instant satisfaction.

I'm very grateful people actually pay me to do it.
