  • "I love programming. I enjoy being able to create something meaningful from just lines on a screen. I enjoy being able to use my knowledge to bring a piece of software to life even if it is something as simple as printing out 'Hello World' on the screen."

  • "I've been hooked on programming since the first time I got a block pixel to appear on an Apple IIe in 1983. There's a sense of magic in being able to tell a machine what to do, and then see the commands come to life as something meaningful and useful to people, enriching their lives, helping with life's mundane tasks, making the impossible possible - and all with a sense of well-crafted, artisanal beauty. Software engineering is the culmination of art, science, and humanitarianism."
