Did you miss my poll? If so, feel free to go back and take it. I'd like to hear from you...your voice counts, y'know.

That said, I have a few answers to give that I haven't gotten around to yet.

dcl -- Honestly, no. Of course I don't know everything about what's going on, but you strike me as thoughtful and capable, and I think you can handle whatever challenges you end up facing.

drteeth26 -- 42

fjarlq -- I was in college, looking for a course to fill a hole in my schedule. I remembered how much I'd liked CS my senior year of high school, and there was a class that fit well into my schedule. So I took it, and really enjoyed it. So I took more. For me, programming is solving logic puzzles. It's fun and creative and challenging, plus it pays well, so it made sense to do it for a living.

operatic -- I have not done much applet-work in Java. Java is used more these days for back-end than for front-end development. But there are some really neat applets still out there! Sorry I can't answer in more detail.

bjorng -- Actually I met the majority of the people on my friends list through LJ, not outside of it. When I started this journal, it was meant to be a secret thing, a place to vent and think out loud, not for my "real life" friends and family to read or even know about. Since then its focus has changed, and a bunch of real-life friends read it too. Still, I have some great friends on here who I have never met face-to-face.

Wow! Your answer to fjarlq is almost exactly the same as my reasons for being involved in computers and what I like about programming! Very cool!

Me too (had a hole in the schedule, didn't want to take a music history class, saw "Intro to Programming" and thought, "What the hell", and it stuck... :) ).

Good answer, thank you! I remember how hard it was in high school to imagine someone NOT wanting to be a programmer... in fact it's still a bit hard to imagine today. :)
