Can coding be fun even if it’s your job?

Hi there! :smiley_cat:

Recently someone told me something that got me thinking. They said, and I quote:

Anyone who codes for a living wouldn’t call it fun.

Is this really true? I ask because I’m a teenager, and I don’t have a job yet. But a lot of you do have real jobs.

In my honest opinion, if you code for a living that means at one point you loved coding and decided to do it for a living. So it should be fun, right? Of course, I know, it’s a job. It’s gonna be hard and boring sometimes, and if you’re really serious about something you’ll keep going even when it’s not fun at all. But you should try to enjoy it as much as you can, right?

Even if you didn’t like coding at first but had to do it as a part of your job, I believe you can choose to enjoy it as much as possible.

I’d love to hear your take on this :slightly_smiling_face:

I know from other people that it can be fun, it depends on the person. For example, my brother is a programmer for SimpliSafe (a security company), and he LOVES his job, and loves using any code he needs to use.


Ikr? Thanks for your reply :slightly_smiling_face:
