Why I am a Programmer

Part of my paradox of life is that I am a tarot-reading, astrological plotting, pyschic delving computer programmer. My speciality is custom database applications. I recently came across a list of "Joys of the Craft" (Page 7, The Mythical Man-Month: Essays on Software Engineering).

The five reasons why programming is fun:

  • The sheer joy of making things

  • The pleasure of making things that are useful to other people

  • The fascination of fashioning complex puzzle-like objects of interlocking moving parts

  • The joy of always learning

  • The delight of working in a tractable medium

Hmmm... just like magick. Go figure.
