Why Coding Is Hard
Thursday, May 16, 2013 04:48 PM

Writing code is a difficult thing, sure.  Or at least it can be.  Reading some stuff on the 'web today gave me a little different perspective on things, especially where it comes to some of the things I'm working on.

The website was for Synergy, an application that allows sharing keyboard and mouse across different computers.  The part that really caught my attention:

"...struggling with staying focused and motivated. Developing software on your own is hard; much of the fun comes from solving problems with people, then running off to furiously hammer out a ton of code, and having someone to show off to. Its impossible to bounce problems off a wall."

That's pretty much exactly how I feel about most of the applications I'm working on.  Since I'm the only developer, it gets a bit frustrating that I don't have someone else to talk to about that cool thing I just implemented.  Ugh.
