My favourite part of software development has always been the creative opportunities that it presents…

  • Coming up with new ideas to complex problems.
  • Trying something out simply to see if works.
  • Building something that no one thinks really works and watching it work.
  • Dreaming of an idea and then putting it into practice.

I love it, I love every aspect of it, it’s amazing and wonderful and beautiful all at the same time with an artistic wonder that I think is sometimes forgotten.

I think it’s the only industry on the planet that offers so much freedom to its community and at the same time provides so much opportunity for growth. ¬†There will always be the long, hard nights debugging problems – but the part that always gets be going to the end of that long, hard night is figuring out a creative solution to the problem and going to bed elated at what I created.
