What do you love most about programming
Hello fellow programmers! :)
I'm sure we all love programming here.
What do you love most about programming?
The feeling of creating amazing thing out of nothing! Conjuring new stuff like Magicians! Ability to debug a problem like solving a murder mystery!! Being able to put software in the hands of people so that one day you come across a person loving a piece of software and you can proudly say that you were the part of the team that built it!!
I like to create algorithms and finding the most elegant way to solve a problem.
The feeling that you can make the computer do whatever you want.
Unlike many other challenges programming is an endless pool of limitless possibilities.
When you encounter a problem you can solve it, if you fail to solve it, you can find another path to solving that problem, if that fails.. guess... YES, find another path to the solution. And once you find a solution it's always room to change whatever result you already conjured up.
The feeling i get when i complete a challenge, task or project that does not involve programming i get a feeling of satisfaction, but at some point there's a limit.
But that does not apply in programming, you find an old piece of code and you look at it with a questionable look in your eye and go "i can do this different..." and before you know it you've plowed through 15 cups of coffee and you forgot dinner... YAY! that's FUN! :D
I like the feeling that we can create anything. All we need is an idea and we can create something out of this idea.
I love the feeling when I am trying to solve a problem
In my mind, the best part is making something that works. I instantly get flooded with a happy feeling and want to show everyone what I made; I like making lengthy programs, with everything shown, so everyone can understand what I made; I like making short prgrams, because they feel effective; I like thinking like a computer, to understand what's wrong with py program or how to make one. This is why coding feels so good.
Programming to me is like speaking to the universe using only logic. Many incredibly intelligent people came before us to create the tools we use every day.
In so many other things in this world there is a subjective nature to it and how it can be interpreted the right way. There are things that are messy.
In the beginning, when learning to programming there is no interpretation. You're right or your wrong. It works or it doesn't. It's clean. It's kind of stress relieving for me to know there will always be logic where if you use your imagination enough you can make something that helps people, brings people together, complete a task in a manner that would be faster and more reliable than any human being could.
Programming changes the way you think; if you think you have problems, you're going to have problems, if you think you have puzzles, things that challenge you might be a bit more fun and solvable with logic. :)
I love the feeling I get when I solve whatever problem I'm working on. It's really satisfying when I've got a solution to a complex problem.
