It gives you the illusion of control. The idea that all problems can be solved and anything can be built. You fool yourself into thinking that you enjoy hunting down the bugs, fixing the errors, and solving the problem. You feel a sense of accomplishment and relief when the things that used to go wrong starts going right, when the concepts you couldn't grasp before become such a small thing that you can explain even when you're asleep.
You feel less alone discussing these concepts with other developers, having a bond or some shit. Having your so called "intellectual conversations". You feel superior over everyone else who can only talk about celebrities and nonsense because to you, you are smart. You understand how things work unlike most people, right? Very special.
The truth is you're bored out of your mind trying to find ways to stimulate your brain, trying to distract yourself from the fact that just like all professions, there is no real purpose in all of this. You get excited over the newest language, tool, whatever. You struggle, study, apply, become proficient, repeat.
Ah, the joys of life.15
