I love programming. I don't love my job. At one point, I thought to myself "data is data is data, it doesn't matter what the domain is." Now? Now I realize that more than programming, you have to be passionate about the product. Oh I enjoy solving the problems. I just can't get excited about the end product. And that affects how I feel about my successes. The minute after pumping my fists victoriously in the air after defeating that one especially pesky issue, just how little I care for the product hits me and makes that victory feel rather hollow. So that is something else to take into consideration as a programmer. Would you be happier working on something else?
