I love programming.
I'm always surprised when people ask me how they could motivate their team members, software developers doing their job. it's been like this since forever, because as a software developer, programmer, I almost always find satisfaction, joy and yes, even pride when I'm finishing something what's working, and people are using it. it feels like I'm making their life easier, or at least removing some friction or annoyment. this gives me the motivation, and helps me get through the times when I feel irritated, annoyed or mad because I have to work with a legacy codebase or have to use uncomfortable, non-user friendly or just flat out stupid tools.
looks like I really love programming.
