You would think that the older you got the less interested you became in the wonderful world of computer programming, not the other way around.
The usual career path in this business is dictated from the moment the unknowing soul finishes his university degree in computer science: junior programmer, software engineer, senior developer, project leader, team leader, project manager, team manager, and onwards and upwards the ladder of so-called success.
However, in my heart I remain a hardcore developer who still loves just to hack around on the computer trying new ideas out and creating amazing feats of programming skills (that no one else is interested in except myself).
There is nothing wrong with that, because in the end that is what I enjoy the most.
Isn't that what life is all about?
