As someone who have been programming for sometime now, I can safely say that it is indeed fun although it truly depends on the person. Not everyone would believe programming (coding) is fun. It's based on personal opinions. The only way to know for sure if it's fun for yourself and your friend is for you both to give it a go, if you enjoy it then you have your answer. I am currently 16 years of age and there's nothing I enjoy doing more.

Coding is a fascinating journey into the realm of technology, enabling you to command your computer to perform amazing tasks such as crafting games, apps, or websites. It's akin to being a digital wizard, conjuring magic on your screen with a few simple keystrokes!

In the world of coding, you communicate with your computer using a unique language it can comprehend. It's somewhat like mastering a new language, but your conversation partner is a computer, not a person.

The beauty of coding lies in the boundless opportunities it offers for creativity. Have you ever dreamt of designing your own video game complete with characters and levels? Coding makes it possible! Or perhaps you've thought about constructing a website that aids people in gathering information or connecting with like-minded individuals? Coding can make that a reality too!

Here's the truly thrilling part: once you embark on your coding adventure, you'll find that there's always a new frontier to explore. With the constant emergence of new technologies, fresh challenges to tackle, and innovative ways to enhance your code, the learning never stops.

I agree with Malcom, you just have to try it and see if you like it!


Some people like/hate it because the coding itself is challenging and some people like/hate it because you spend 99% of your time building something that doesn't work - then finally after all that hard work you hit that 1% and you are satisfied because you've finally made a working product! It is different for everyone.


For example, let's say for StarCraft 3, Blizzard wants to make a unit that zig-zags its way to destinations instead of just going in a straight line. As a programmer, that is something that you'll have to figure out! What is the existing way that paths are calculated across the map? How can you (as the programmer) manipulate the original way paths are calculated and introduce zig-zagging? How can you test to see if the zig-zag path will work no matter where the unit is on the map? These types of questions are what coders think about.


The amount that people are paid for the work they do highly depends on a lot of factors like the economy, new technology, location, etc. There are a lot of resources online that give statistics on averages salaries for professions.
