General Development "I've been programming professionally for about 3 years at this point, and I've noticed some interesting patterns in other programmers I've worked with. One of the key differentiators among programmers is motivation. I'm not referring to an individual's passion to simply be successful in their career, but rather the type of work they want to pursue. The thing they want to do with computers every day, the types of problems they are interested in solving."

Being a self-taught dev, I've lately noticed these tendencies, though I never noticed when I was younger & thought I could do it all.

I kinda get upset that I'm supposed to be doing dev-stuff all day long, but hey, I get paid for it. Whenever a project changes, I turn into engineer-fixit-mode. And lately I've been taking a data-scientist approach to some of my side-projects (and SEO stuff).. It's all loads of fun.
