激情 - Passion

Passion

Sometimes when you give an impressionable young mind (anybody deciding to learn to code, age is irrelevant) two tools and a problem, they will use the two tools to create four more tools. Then they will get on the internets and find some more tools … soon they have twenty tools and what was the problem you wanted me to solve again?

That’s passion!

Pure unadulterated passion for programming. When you can be fascinated, even excited, about this stuff without a need to solve a problem. Hell, even if you are solving a problem that you know is a meaningless exercise … that’s where greatness lies.

It doesn’t matter what age you started coding at – many studies have shown experience is not a predictor of quality in our world – what matters is that you have a passion for this stuff.

Because if you’ve got the passion, then you probably have everything else you need as well.

Programmers are born not made

激情

有时候,当你给一个有上进心的年轻心灵(任何愿意学习编程的人,年龄不是问题)两种工具和一个难题。他会使用这两种工具创造出4种工具。他会搜索互联网,发现更多的工具…很快,他有了20种工具,请问你还让我解决什么问题?

这就是激情!

心无杂念的对编程的激情。没有问题需要解决时仍然对编程入迷,甚至兴奋。甚至把解决一个已知的问题也当作一次普通的练习…这就是卓越之处。

多大岁数才开始学习编程,这并不重要——很多研究显示,在我们这个世界里,编程的工龄并不是水平的指示符——重要的是你对这个行业有个充满激情的心。

因为,一旦有了激情,你就拥有了所有其它的一切。

做任何事情,如果没有激情,就没法做得比别人更好!

在IBG数年,有两个同事说的话一直让我印象深刻:

  1. 技术,要有激情! —— Teddy

  2. 同样的事情,你来做和别人做能有什么不一样? —— Flying

今天看到【外刊IT评论】的这篇文章(一个人是否能成为程序员是上天注定的),深有感触!特以此文自勉。
