Software Engineering

Why Software Engineering?

To me it always seemed like the natural choice to make. But here’s a couple more reasons…

1. Because Programming is Fun

  • Its a combination of intelligent and creative work.
  • The sheer joy of making things.
  • The pleasure of making things that are useful to other people.
  • The fascination of fashioning complex puzzle-like objects of interlocking moving parts.
  • The joy of always learning.
  • Taking a machine that was designed for no purpose in particular and making it do anything I want.

2. Because computers have been a life long passion of mine
