Why I code?

I love to code! To create something from nothing and to say I made that was and is exciting for me. I started writing code back in the late 1980's when I got my first computer. My first programs were line basic code typed in from magazines on my TRS-80 Color Computer 3. They were crude but I loved doing it. I would spend hours trying to understand how the programs that I typed from the magazines worked. That is what gave me the desire to go to college and major in computer science. To this day I am happy I worked to get that degree. Unfortunally my desire to create programs wasn't enough to get a position doing it so I took IT support positions. But even though I haven't gotten a position as a developer I still love writing code. Even if I'm not in a position of programmer/developer that hasn't stopped me from continuing to studying and trying to be a better programmer. One day I hope to get a position somewhere working to develop software.
