Why are you a programmer ?

Being a Software Developer, you should know why are you a programmer?

Are you in Programming just because you have e done MCA or BE in Computers ?. Answer of majority people is Yes. But it should not be the case.

One of the major problems with the people is that many just aren’t interested in programming.

I have seen profiles of people who are not even computer graduates and they are programmers.

From my perspective, Creating computer programs is not only a job.

Majority of the people aspiring to be programmers won’t write a program until they are FORCED to by their college or by their employer. And that is NOT good.

I would say 70% of the people opting for this profession are doing it just because They thinks that it has good money and a very convenient way of getting abroad.

And when people do something without having a real liking or passion for that thing, it shows up in the quality of the output.

You can teach people syntax of JAVA and SQL and any other programming language. But you can’t really teach people to think creatively. Think of a solution for a problem. And certainly you cant teach someone to love their profession.

Well, One thing is also that I am not talking about individuals situation but this is the true fact which can’t be ignored.
