Discussion on: Has becoming a developer changed you?

A CS background, and then "programming as hobby" (yes, I chose a different career path, nevermind) taught me a lot about thinking in a different way on everything.

Everyday actions became more shematic, more efficient, now I use to think a lot about how to improve my performance overall, how to not waste time and energy on things, how to put more and more attention on details that can impact, in a way or another, on my efficiency, how to focus on the problem and how to solve it, etc.

The whole thing about learning how to program imo, it's probably that it will shape your mind, it will train it, it will teach you "how to think" and not only "how to build", that's something you can use everywhere on everything, not only at work.
