"If you give someone a program, you will frustrate them for a day,
but if you teach them how to program, you will frustrate them for a lifetime."
The Curse has bestowed upon me, and I will be cursed for life. Although it's an enjoyable curse that I will enjoy for life. Programming strengthens one's mind and judgment in all aspect of life.
Currently I'm a Web Programmer in a Marketing and Advertising Firm that helps website promotion (or SEO/Search Engine Optimization). Most of my work focused on PHP, MySQL, Web Administration, SEO and improving the company's existing CMS and Wordpress' Blogging Software.
One of my favorites in adding my Zen Wisdom is from Peter Norvig's Teach Yourself Programming in Ten Years.
And Robert L. Read's How to a Programmer helps my debugging tasks.
Nevertheless, sharing from my experience, weakness helps to strengthen you. I'll be forever buried to improve bad software and good software.
Still, it's enjoyable. :)
