15 Reasons I Became a Developer
The journey to developerism started when I finished grade 10. I was picking courses for next year and I couldn’t figure out which class I should take to fill the last spot. There were a number of options: gym, advanced math, maybe a French course, but one course stood out from the rest; it was computer science.
Since that original class, I have gone on to take my bachelors degree in Comp Sci. and have grown that original interest into a love for programming and development work. While some could say that the original reason I became a developer would be to the lack of other good courses, I have other reasons. Today I’m going to tell you 33 reasons why I became a developer.
- I enjoy solving problems
- Working with computers is fun
- The money is great
- My friend’s a developer
- There were programs that I needed, but hadn’t been created
- I enjoy breaking software (its fun :D)
- I had a teacher that said I should
- In grade 9, I made my first website
- The work is both challenging and slow, but never boring
- Chicks digg developers (they say they don’t, but its true)
- Developers are always in demand
- There’s a number of really cool job opportunites (AI, Cryptology, etc…)
- Allows me to bring out my nerdy side
- I can work on a computer all day
- Rockstar, quaterback and stuntdriver never panned out as careers
As you can probably tell, not all of these are true reasons (You can’t always work on a computer), but I have always wanted to do this great job. If you are a developer, why did you want to become one? If you’re not a developer, what are you and why did you want to do that?
