I saw a colleague of mine cry when I was undertaking my first internship.
Asked them why they were crying and i found out they were very frustrated at a task she had to do periodically, which required repetitive work.
I wrote a script to automate the task without being requested to, since I had some spare time and when I told them they hugged me and thanked me a lot.13
The moment when you begin to understand just about any programming language because you mastered one. And you solve problems much more effectively.12
Sitting down for an entire weekend with a couple of friends, just to work on a side project.
No deadline, just fun. And beer, lots of beer 😅6
When it finally works after hours or days of suffering.
Or, when you clean things up and get to delete some garbage code.
Makes it all worth it in the end5
a friend of mine and me developed a mmorpg years ago on friday nights and we were learning a lot of sql on the way. for a tidy nested query that sped everything massively up i got a sudden kiss on the cheek at 5am. best reward ever.1
Parts of the code I am working on date back to the early nineties, written in ancient C++ with lots of special cases for ancient compilers by people with 0-2 years of coding experience.
My favourite coding moment is every time when after refactoring a part of the code, it has about 1000 lines less (no exaggeration), is more reliable, AND can do a lot more than before.6
I worked on a game jam last year, and for the first time I managed to finish a full software project that wasn't for a job or university. It was really fun to work on, and seeing my vision come to life, even if compromises had to be made, as well as applying all the programming and project management knowledge I'd picked up until then was an experience unlike anything I'd had before.
The community aspect was great too, everybody shared and discussed each other's games and were super friendly and encouraging.
Finishing what I thought would take days in hours all because of focused coding sessions. Realised I procrastinate way more than I should😂1
Watching the small interpreter that I am building compile and run as I want it to is my big highlight, I am working on a project that a lot of people will hate really (I am trying to bring back VBScript for the web, but adding a ton of shit to it to make it a proper PHP alternative, this is a side project really)
But before that? Understanding the neckbeard rants in hacker news, legit, I used to browse there trying to find perspective of what experts would think, would not understand shit, eventually, skills came (and so did the degree) and I was able to fully understand them and even interact with them.
that also squandered all notions of impostor syndrome.3
after six months debugging unstructured, freeform python code from my colleagues, i found java strictness paradisal8
When I teach/help someone with code without telling them explicitly what to type and their solution works and they get hyped af. Never gets old. I like helping people.3
Own side project built from the ground up where I understand every corner of the codebase and application, can work at my own pace, and have no product managers, tech leads, or "architects" telling me what to do.3
Sometimes in our personal projects we write crazy commit messages. I'll post mine because its a weekend and I hope someone has a well deserved start. Feel free to post yours, regex out your username, time and hash and paste chronologically. ISSA THREAD MY DUDES AND DUDETTES

When you use that piece of infrastructure you build for weeks for the first time and it saves you so much time.
Its most enjoyable when you are working on a codebase that was cleary planned and thought out beforehand. Bugs are easy to fix, features are easy to make because you already have a blueprint of how its supposed to look, modifying features is easy because you already know where to look to make the changes. You can work with plain jquery or fucking visual basic and youll still have a better time then with any modern framework if you have that.
Honestly when tests finally pass and no bugs are to be seen after a long period of working on something.
just trying to slowly understand the working of a system component in order to make some poc/app work. then trying them all step by step, only to get them all working at first try!
