The Joys of the Craft

In The Mythical Man Month Frederick Brook describes the five rewards that the craft of software development provides to its practitioners.

  1. The sheer joy of making things
  2. The pleasure of making things that are useful to other people
  3. The fascination of fashioning complex puzzle-like objects of interlocking moving parts
  4. The joy of always learning
  5. The delight of working in such a tractable medium

I agree 100%. Every day, despite the setbacks and annoyances, I am so grateful that I work in this field.
