I’ve been asked the same question many times: “Why would you want to be a programmer?”, and I admit, sometimes I, myself, wonder why as well. The truth is, that there is no one reason why, and yet there are many.
Now, just forget everything I just said and let me throw out some more accurate info. I’ve probably only been asked why I wanted to be a programmer once or twice. Because everyone already knows, programmers control the world. The entire world is shifting to an app centric culture, and It seems that when visionaries and programmers work together, great things happen, and lots of money is made. Nowadays people think that programmers do what they do for the money.
But they’re wrong, in my case, well, partially. It’s true that I look forward to the day when I’m sipping Java from my Chateau while programming it, without a place to be but in front of my computer screen, but there’s a much bigger reason, at least to me. While money is great and all, the feeling you get after figuring out how to make/fix something in a program you’ve been working on is the prime motivator for me. The thrill of figuring out how to do something by programming is almost beyond words.
In this blog, I’m not going to be teaching programming, or giving you tips you already know. (although, if your new to programming like I am, Feel free to use my content for learning purposes) I’m not going to give you a chance to go inside the mind of a programmer, just that of a Programmer to Be.
