Not bad, for me it was like I get to the point where the code is working and get to stop without having to really clean it up and add tests. (Its just a Proof of Concept after all) The customer interaction depends on the product some but is usually just being excited about teaching people about the product and actually knowing your shit when someone asks you a technical question.

The only thing is being able to be diplomatic to customers that are angry or difficult. "Why doesn't the product to this? I don't like this interface" That being said the sales people deal with most of the crap.

Since everyone else mentioned what they program in outside of work, then I'll do the same [spoiler]even though nobody cares. Also, I don't think spoilers work in /g/.[/spoiler]

I mostly program in C++ but I've touched Java and Python a bit before. Most proficient in C++, which isn't saying much considering how complicated that language can be.

How do I into connections? I'm likable and I make friends, but no friends that could get me a job.

Most of my family are military, teachers, or nurses and doctors. Most of my friends are arty faggots. Am I destined to either join the military or work shit jobs with starving artists my entire life?
>>
>>45429122
From my experience, it all starts with a good internship. If you can't land one yourself, talk to
upper class men who have had internships.
>>
>>45429122
military, teachers, nurses and doctors all use computers in there work place. there is always a way.

i remember when i was in high school i wanted to be the IT staff for the school cos' they had shit easy.
>>
>>45429122
just apply to anything you want to get into
>and lie like a motherfucker on that CV
>>
>>45429122
your connections don't need to work with computers, just let those tech illiterate people know that you are looking for a job in tech. Guess what, that doctor friend will remember when the practice they work at are looking for new networking interns.

What's Web Dev like as a job?
I always thought with more and more tech illiterate monkeys just using templates in DreamWeaver or other bullshit code generators, there would be less work.

It's an interesting job. We just moved all of our research systems (hundreds of machines) to a new power and cooling infrastructure. It was a 1.5 day outage to do that. I did all the tech work of that by myself since my colleague was at Super Compute 2014.
