Discussion on: How much of a role should "enthusiasm" play in the software development process?

An enthusiastic person would be someone that is easy to work with, is excited about a lot of things, jumps at opportunities, etc. Not someone willing to work after hours without the need to do so, learn new tech just for the job without being paid, etc. more or less someone who enjoys doing their work but doesn't live and breathe it.

Enthusiasm is something that is commonly found among older developers, while you find passion in newer developers.
