I like to program, even more so, when I am bored. Why do we like to program? There is one thing for sure, that it earns money for us in the IT era, but there should be some inner desires, so that we keep coming back to programming.
It could be fulfilling the creativity within us, like a child placing the blocks around to create something beautiful that it can see and enjoy. I have been programming so long that I love it, and if I have to replace programming with something else, I always worry about the loss of joy. Do you feel the same way? How I can get the same joy, that is equivalent to programming joy, without doing computer programming?
