Why is going to an office everyday or worst yet a cubicle and staring at code on a screen all day a desirable profession? Thats the life you want?
Honestly though, it's not just software development, it's practically everything that isn't manual labor or social sciences. Anything STEM will have you using a computer most of the time nowadays.
>I have never worked a real programming job
It involves a fuck-ton of talking because without proper communication teams fall apart and projects fail
If you're only concerned with implementation/writing code then congratulations, you're a code monkey
I just want to be accepted in the field of programming, I don't want to rot in a cubicle.
Its a science, afterall.
Was a leader of a run away project once.
Never again. Fuck that shit. I am not touching impossible shitty projects again.
Modern software engineering almost always involves a team of some kind
you're gonna have to deal with people whether you want it or not
the myth that all programmers are some greasy basement dwellers is outdated
Because programming was my hobby and now getting paid for it is fucking amazing
Most people in the world hate their jobs so if you're like me, you're one of the few lucky ones
I like programming enough to still work on personal projects on the weekends
I think all of us here are on the spectrum ago some extent. I seen some bitch on the train today looking at a video of her and her boyfriend poking their tongues out of their mouths and making silly faces presumably to post on instagram. Literally wanted to smash her phone and punch her in the nose. I take pleasure in focusing on problems for long periods of time as well. Just didn't like programming.
I like making things.
And I get a lot of freedom to choose what to make and when, without any nagging managers.
When I hear my (non-software developer) friends talk about their office work experiences I am so glad I picked this direction.
Allow me to clarify. Pic related. You wouldn't want to work with this?
>I don't want to rot in a cubicle.
Cubicles are illegal in my country.
And they are more for employees who need to use the phone a lot.
A modern office is very open.
Don't ever apply for a job with a company that still has cubicles.
Heres a scenario. You're a network admin wearing more than one hat at the company you work for and she's having a problem locating her files or getting her system to start and while you're sitting at her desk troubleshooting she's leaning over your shoulder purposely rubbing those tits all over your back and neck…..shall I go on?
