    Well, it's that kind of mentality that gives clients the guts to write : "i won't pay you, but would you do it for publicity"

    Let's say it like this:

    If my job would be something not-so-IT-ish, I'd still program in my free time.
    It's like music, drawing, [...]
    programming can be an ART and a PASSION

    Reminds me of a zuckerberg quote after the movie came out.

    He said they framed the movie as if he made Facebook to impress a girl. He then commented that Hollywood could never understand that he made facebook simply because he likes making things.

    Expanding on it being fun: I think coding is fun because I get to help solve others (and my own) problems. If TeamSpeak sucks you bet your ass imma make a better client for it (very literal example lol)

    I couldn't agree more~

    I started ExitCode thinking it would make no money and no one would care about it. Now I have a wonderful (though, small for now) fan base here on devRant, a vulunteere dev team of 6, and a hand full of Patron Backers. <3

    It's not much, but this is more than I thought would happen~

    I love programming. Like, seriously love it. I love it enough that I gave up potentially very lucrative and much easier career paths to pursue it.

    That said, you has BETTER pay me because I am a high maintenance bitch. At least I'm honest. 😉
