Training Preparation -- What 100 Attendees Like About Software Development

Favorite thing about dev
I like working on products that sell. It is fulfilling to know someone is using a product that you worked on.
Show
Problem solving, architecting, implementing new things. Making hardware do things! Sometimes I like debugging, especially when the problem is interesting without being too frustrating.
Show
Helping users solve problems
Show
Coding
Show
The quick development cycle. I don't have to send a design out to get fabricated, I just have to compile it.
Show
To see the physical interaction between the real world and our system at the end of the day.
Show
I like designing an elegant and maintainable solution to a problem.
Show
I like the problem solving aspect of trying to get a robot to do what you want it to do with logical statements.
Show
Everything.
Show
I like the process of writing code to solve problems and make complicated systems work in a clear, uncomplicated implementation
Show
creativity
Show
solving problems, learning new things
Show
I like it when we all know what we are doing, why we are doing it, and how we plan on doing it, and setting up goals and meet deadlines, and meet customer demands an high standards. I prefer Agile development, and Scrum methodologies.
Show
Learning new technologies
Show
The ability to design, implement and visualize solutions for various protocols and interfaces in complex systems.
Show
I like coding, it gives me a challenge.
Show
To see my program running perfectly and without bugs is so satisfying
Show
Problem solving.
Show
I like software engineering because I think there is a creative aspect to it. I enjoy STEM topics and I am also pretty creative so I like how sometimes software engineering can combine those two aspects.
Show
Building things. That feeling of dopamine when it all comes togeather on a screen.
Show
I like to get a problem from a scientist and solve it with an optimized software. I often get a matlab or a C++ routine and make it run very fast, possibly with more accurate algorithm and results.
Show

I like learning new things. With things I mean e.g. patterns, principles and so on. Last week we did a Kata and tried to only write code based on principles like balanced abstraction, step down rule and so on. I like refactoring of code.
Show
I like the challege of breaking down code to figure out what its doing and I appreciate the ability to create code to serve as a solution to some problem.
Show
1. Seeing the transformation of idea/requirement to a real life solution 2. My idea controlling something real 3. Taking inputs from real world and giving some out put
Show
Building Abstractions that lift the semantics of the code closer to the domain of the project.
Show
Deriving methods to solve problems
Show
That I can design and implement something from scratch. Getting the computer to do exactly what you want is awesome. I love solving problems.
Show
- Great to design systems - Great to implement systems - Satisfying to make code do expected - Learn new technologies and ways - Understand systems how they work and solve issues (sort of puzzle solving) - Delivering value to customers

I like that programming gives us the ability to create so many great things and all you need is your computer.
Show

Show
Amount of learning involved and how designs and concepts are so beautiful. Gives the jitter on anything new that I take up. Best thing is, we can work from anywhere :) I love the variety of things that can be done.
Show
Problem solving, to be able to synthesize thought/idea to real world code.
Show
Working through obscurity and indecision to develop a working, well-crafted system is really satisfying.
Show
Building things, getting things done, problem solving, helping people.
Show
I love problem solving and challenging my brain.
Show
It's the laziest form of building you can do, and I love to build things.
Show
It's open-ended, there's the opportunity to be creative. There's a craft to it - you can go a long way further than having code that functions as required, and have code that is transparently written, reusable and efficient.
Show
I like building out the application, little by little adding features and getting them to work successfully and creatively and then finally having a functioning program that can be seen or interacted with on the user side.
Show
challenging myself to always learn something new, and to find good, simple solutions to common problems
Show
Automation, getting a task done in an elegant and well-documented way.
Show
I enjoy thinking logically, and writing software. I believe makes you better at analyzing problems.
Show
It's exact - given input(s), you get expected output(s).
Show
I like debugging complex issues in embedded systems (race conditions, hardware problems, etc.). I typically like writing drivers.
Show
I enjoy seeing it run after
Show
The pure joy of creation. Solving a problem for a users.
Show
The challenge that comes along with using a rudimentary set of tools to accomplish complex tasks, its like using simple machines to create complex machines to accomplish a task.
Show
It's creative and therapeutic. It's fun to solve problems, make things work and help others meet their goals.
Show
Building something from nothing and hopefully never touching again
Show
Solving problems, learning new concepts, getting to the hardware. Rust
Show
i like developing software, because something that i made to help solve a problem or issue a customer was facing. its very collaborative as well, asking questions how things should be done,, sharing ideas to solve an issue
Show
Problem solving, making embedded hardware do something, enjoy low level register
Show
Imagining a capability, figuring out how to make it work, and then implementing it in code
Show
Solving problems and challenges due to the complex nature of the task itself or hardware limitations. Figuring out why a piece of code is not behaving as expected.

Show
I like the creative part of developing software. There are a billion ways to write the code that achieves the same goal. The fun part is figuring out the best approach.
Show
That I'm doing something useful to make people's life more comfortable
Show
It can be a very creative and interesting activity. Always interesting to be able to learn new languages and techniques.

Show
The satisfaction when your logic works as expected.
Show
Creative, build something that has an end functionality.
Show
Programming is always a challange and continuous stream of problem solving.
Show
Visualising how things work, writing code make it work
Show
The feeling I get when I get to implement a design, and also the feeling I get when I find a illusive bug.
Show
Problem Solving
Show
When it works
Show
Seeing something come to life.
Show
fun
Show
Working though the logic of creating and designing a system and seeing it perform as intended.
Show
I like developing new software and testing software to its limits.
Show
The feeling of accomplishment when you start with just ideas and slowly implement functionality to make a whole system work. I also like how you get to create distinct functions and then put them together.
Show
I like using the simple set of tools a language provides to slowly plan out and solve a larger problem.
Show
It's fun. You are creating something!
Show
Solving unique problems on systems that impact the real world.
Show
problem solving and seeing things "work" on the target hardware
Show
seeing it work in action
Show
I enjoy the end result when a device works as intended.

Show
I like using logic to solve complex problems. I also really like the results, getting hardware to perform tasks and/or automate processes.
Show
Watching my code cause a desired effect on the target hardware.
Show
It's fun to build something that helps someone / solves their problem
Show
It's both creative and logical. It produces tools that increase our productivity and quality of our work.
Show
Sense of accomplishment and creating something new
Show
Code can help users perform some tasks/activities and make their life easier.
Show
Making beautiful new things is great. Solving real problems that real people face. Coming at old problems from new angles. Balancing multiple competing factors. Performance optimization.

write code, debug code
Show
Opportunity for creativity in designing object responsibilities and interactions. Optimizing for performance.
Show
kind and enjoyable as you can confirm results by myself quickly and make changes if there is need.

Back when I did it, it was fun to see something working and be able to change it. I enjoyed seeing it go live.
Show
Developing unique ways to solve problems. Making LEDs blink.
Show
