A long-time friend and I recently got together ‘again’ to develop a new app. We decided to challenge ourselves with something new and original so we both enrolled in ASP.NET Framework and Developer courses. Clearly he’s excelling at learning the language, where it takes me a little longer for some of the concepts to sink in. After all, he’s a developer through and through and I’m a tech recruiter with a background in organizational development. However, we both understand each other’s strengths and we know our areas of opportunity. We also work very well together so to us, this is exciting!
However, the reward of developing a new app goes far beyond just setting and achieving goals. Working with technology and overcoming the challenges that we will face is an outlet for us. It’s how we get together and hang out. It’s our way of stretching and pushing ourselves beyond our limits and challenging our abilities. In some way, our friendship is connected through the development of technology.
When you go to work do you go because you enjoy working with your friends, do you go for the challenge of technology or both?
