Ode to Life, Music, & Code

It’s fascinating where the path of life lead you. More than a decade ago I was just a freelance self-taught web developer. No relevant academic background whatsoever. Doing small gigs here & there, barely making ends meet. My passion for creation was my main drive to get through those endless nights of coding. And I also had music. Music was always there with me.

What I listened to in 2008. Yes, I’m a big fan of American Idol.
Dugong, a PHP-Flex-ActionScript3 framework I wrote in 2008. I used it extensively for the next couple of years.

And now here I am. Working for a software company in a first world country, whose products are marketed all around the globe. Using the latest and the best tools in the industry. Here I am coding away from one the best cities in the world. Just me, my laptop, and my headphones. Coding and listening to the same music, like I did years ago when I started this path.

I admit, sometimes I got tired of coding too.

Some coders will tell you programmers are people capable of converting caffeine into code. Well I use music as my fuel. I convert sound wave into code. Here is an ode to more music and more codes. So grateful for both.

Has music, will code.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
