Why I love being a programmer

I have just returned from a fabulous couple of days at the Greenpeace international office in Amsterdam. I have been reminded why I do what I do; why I am a programmer.

As I was walking through what we’ve built so far on the CMS with all the people involved in the project, ideas for how to streamline and simplify the code, while making it do more of what they really need, kept running through my mind. I now have a long list mostly small concrete things that I started on while on the plane home, and that I simply can’t wait to get through.

And I am confident that in the process I will shrink the size of the code, and I am absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to help people accomplish more with less software.
