I’m curious; what’s everyone’s favorite thing about programming? Do you do it just to “get things done” or do you enjoy it? What’s your favorite programming language?
Personally, I love seeing my ideas unfold over the days/weeks and the satisfaction that comes with saying “I made that!”… I’ve been programming for more than half my life (16bit .asm when I was 9 ) and it’s become such an everyday part of my life that I would feel like an empty shell without it (pun intended). As for my favorite language… hmm, tough one! It’s changed over the years, I used to love doing low level stuff in .asm, then I heard of this witchcraft called C where you didn’t have to write a 75 line routine to 0xB800 or 0xA000 just to say “hello, world”… as the years went on I dabbled in a few others and eventually ended up with Ruby for the most amount of time. And now recently, when I got back into using Blender I decided to give my ultimate fear (python, it’s quite intimidating, y’know!) a try (no curly braces! what is this!?) and I’ve fallen in love with programming all over again
So, what’s your programming story? I’d love to hear!
