quite a few of them apply for me - though I have to admit, having done a good percentage of client liaison over the past few months, engaging with customers isn't top of the list!

I think learning new technologies, and then very much doing cool things with them is where it's at - writing code/solving problems makes (for me) the job far more fun!

looking forward to seeing the rest of the results :)

cheers,

For me it has changed signifcantly over the years. It used to be really simple for me - Writing Code was what I loved to do. Then I discovered the pleasure of a great team, then the pleasure of knowing enough to help colleagues.

I don't enjoy writing code as much as I once did - seems just a lot more complicated than it was back in the days of VB6. I do enjoy starting a new project though.

Writing code still gives me a buzz. Even if using Visual studio 2008 that writes most of the code for you. Creating code that sorts a problem is a gas.

I like each part of application development life cycle.

When it comes specific tasks I like starting up a new project, application design, documenting, coding and learning new technologies.

My response was Writing Code, but this is a very broad heading and I think it should be called Developing Good Code. It is possible to write code quickly without thinking about it too much, but what is the satisfaction in that ?

Developing code well includes:
- possible research into new technology and coding techniques
- designing an appropriate solution that matches the requirement, not over engineered but sophisticated enough to do the job properly
- using tools such as automated testing frameworks to deliver fault free software
- writing the minimum amount of code that solves the problem while communicating the meaning clearly
- delivering software that you can feel proud of

Of course there is much more to add, but I just felt that Writing Code was too ambiguous.
