Why We Code (again)

(As opposed to Why We Fight)

I've always felt that there was a unique property of writing code that was not found in other professions - getting in the Zone, seeing the data in your mind, making a machine do your bidding.  It's something that I always like when I get the chance to write new code (a rare occurrence these days).  Debugging provides the thrill of the hunt, as an alternative to pure creation, for variety.

So I was greatly pleased to find someone else who considers himself Lucky to be a Programmer

Gustavo covers much of the same ideas that I have felt, and I'm heartened that an apparently younger programmer (or at least newer programmer) is still finding the same joys in the work.
