This short story is all about the absolute joy you can experience as a Developer. I wrote it to share what it is that I miss sometimes, now that I’ve taken on a different path these last years. I wanted to write it down to share a combination of feelings that I miss that other developers might recognise as well and can cherish even more because it is written down. Hopefully this blog brings a smile to your face if you’re a developer, and can even be something that you can rely on in darker times. When those blasted builds just won’t go green, tests won’t pass, or production is not the happy place that it should be.
