Many of you probably don’t know this but I am a Software Developer (or programmer, it’s friendlier sounding) when I’m not drawing or doing whatever else it is that I do. As a programmer, I often have to solve challenges, it’s kind of why we create software, to solve a problem or automate something. Anyways, when I am stuck on something, I turn to this site called StackOverflow, it’s a forum style website where you post questions and others tell you to Google the answer and make you feel stupid some of the time, they are helpful some of the time though too.
I routinely subject myself to this torture, and usually get help with my problem. Lately though, I’ve found that after I post a question, I end up answering it myself. You’re allowed to answer your own questions on the site. And that feels good, it makes me feel smart!
Programming is tough sometimes, but it’s interesting and creative. I think that’s what attracted me to it when I started my college career. And it’s given me a pretty cool job as well!
