Why do you program?

+23 Bucky Roberts · January 27, 2015
For me, it is because I like to build things. Programming (to me) is like the coolest toy you could ever buy. At first, learning was really frustrating whenever I would have a bug I couldn't figure out, or even just feeling overwhelmed by the amount of stuff there was to learn. But after a while the ability to create new things whenever I felt far outweighed everything else. 

Its awesome being able to build things without having to buy supplies or material. All you need is knowledge, time, and some motivation. Pretty cool if you think about it  :)

Love technology and solving tech problems. Sharing and receiving knowledge with likeminded people from different walks of life.

I code because it is the future. Most jobs in the future will be automated. There will be no taxi drivers, pilots, chefs, workers, etc. But who will be doing all that automation. The programmers.

BTW can anyone direct me to the source code on the Android App Development for Beginners tutorials about Fragments(23-30)? My program will not work. It just crashes.

I program because it is fun to do, doesn't cost anything to do (unless you count electricity bills), I can build things with it, and it allows me to express myself/vent when it comes to designing stuff.

It is also a big time sink, and gives me something to be excited about during the week at work and/or class :D

The main reason I program is because I can't afford to play golf all day, everyday.

When my grandmother was dying she made me sit by her bedside and she told me there was something in her life she had left undone, she told me that when she was 8 years old she was down by the lake playing tennis when all of a sudden she was attacked by a frog, losing an arm. She vowed one day to exact revenge on all frogs and eventually saved enough money to build a robotic version of herself to achieve this, sadly though she lacked the programming skills to enable it to tear the arms off frogs and it has spent most of its life unused in the closet like some sort of bad metal grandmother. As she took her last breath she made me promise to fulfill her lifes goal, to achieve what she could not and that is why I spend  night after night writing code trying to bring my metal grandmother to life, for revenge.
