What is being a programmer?
This weekend I went up to my grandmother’s house with a good part of the extended family. We did some house cleaning and yard maintenance – things she can’t do in her current state of being. I was bummed I missed them taking the tree down, one that was only a few feet taller than me when I was growing up. During the visit, my cousin had sheets to fill out regarding his high school graduation project. A few willing participants answered questions like, ‘What is your job title? Do you feel fulfilled in your work? What is your average day like? What would you tell someone going in to your field?’ It was the last question that really made me think.
