Why ipv6 It will come, you can’t stop it, they told us. You need to be ready, they told us. It will be soon, they told us.. Well, they were all wrong, but why, and when will it fanally come, if ever? When will it finally take off? That is a quote I typed on…
It’s not ‘just a job’
Programming just isn’t. It’s a way of thinking which doesn’t end when you leave your 9-5. It is always on your mind; it should always be on your mind. I’ve waked up in the middle of the
night thinking of a new concept which I couldn’t grasp while I was in the office.
Right now I’m at home, it’s 41 after 12 at night on a
saturday sunday morning and I can’t seem to stop thinking about my job. Am I obsessed? Well, maybe, but I like to think I’m obsessed in a good way. I haven’t left school to think ‘Well, that’s all I ever needed to be able to make my way to my pension.’ No, I try to learn every day. Off course this doesn’t always happen, most of the time I’m lucky and my job offers me ways to deepen my knowledge of programming, but I also try to learn outside the job. On the job I have to type PHP, at home I can learn whatever I want, I’ve tried to dabble a little in c#/asp.net, I have multiple raspberry pi’s (one of which will interact with a Violet rabbit, if it’s the last thing I try) The list is endless.
And to be honest, that’s the way I like it. I would be lost on my job if I stopped learning the moment I stepped away from my teachers. I enjoy coming up with new ways to fix problems, I love the fact we’ve not even scratched the surface of what is possible with a browser. I adore the fact the code I’m working with on a day-to-day basis is broken by design, so it pushes me to think about new ways to convert this code into current code.
So what is your excuse you’re reading this posting and aren’t programming? 😛
