tibberous Posted February 11, 2011 Share Posted February 11, 2011 Anymore, I hate programming. Every project is the same - create an admin area, create a table, create a page that lists all records from a table, create a page to view/edit that record, create activate/delete functions. Then create a design, create pages, paste in slideshows / photo galleries / whatever, and done. It's just so damn cut and dry and so damn repetitive. I'll bet 80% of any project I do is cut and paste. In some ways, it's good. I can do a $2,500 project in a couple days, but it's just the same thing over and over and over again. I might as well be working in a damn assembly line. I dunno - I've been a programmer forever, it just sucks when you realize that what you do isn't actually challenging, it's just a job like everyone else has. The stuff that was challenging you did two years ago, and can just reuse. Maybe it's just the jobs I've been getting, but really there are only a few different components to most websites, and I have almost all of them in a folder on my desktop. Every now and then I'll get to do something fun, like write a datamining spider or Excel importer, but that's like 1% of projects. For anyone that's been programming a while, do you like being a programmer? Do you like programming? I think right now my answers would be 'Yes' and 'No' =/ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
