I was just reminded of these two tweets, which do a great job capturing some non-technical aspects of being a developer.

If you like oscillating between feeling like the stupidest person on earth and a fucking genius, you’ll love coding.

Always wanted to travel back in time to try fighting a younger version of yourself? Software development is the career for you!

How true, how true!

Sometimes I'm not oscillating at all. I feel like a stupid person all the time until the last bug is solved, and suddnly the whole sodding thing starts working. The feeling of being a genius then is justified though!

There's nothing like the feeling of solving a problem, but man, sometimes it's a bumpy road...
