Last year I did an extensive code review and added some long overdue tests. As it turns out, my source code was buggy as hell! So little optimization, so much missing functionality, and some functions even outright did the wrong thing!
It’s a wonder the thing even compiled…
So, it’s time for an overhaul and make this system run like it should!
After 10 years of pretending to be happy in my job , I’m finally doing something I really and truly love.
Join me on my journey towards becoming a solution engineer!
And yes, it is truly awesome.
Sure I still have a lot to learn, but you immediately feel like you’re part of the solution, not the problem. And the feeling you get when you finally fix that bug, when that elusive test succeeds or simply when you get it to work, it’s like nothing else I’ve ever experienced.
A deeper understanding
The fun thing about the developer mindset, is that as you gain more knowledge, you also gain more insight in the world around you. You look differently at the world, into it’s innards and try figure out how it works.
With our code, we bridge the gap between theory and practice. We turn fantasy into science. We make dreams a reality.
It’s that deeper understanding that sets apart programmers and developers and I only truly feel at home amongst them.
Until next time.
