Hey bit-tech community, I'm looking for the perspective of a programmer (with a degree, or have been in trade for long period of time). I'm thinking about studying computer science in college (I'm currently a freshman studying mechanical engineering) and I want to know whether programmers GENUINELY like what they do. Also, I'm curious as to what a yearly salary is (on average). I have googled it and got figures, but i want to know from actual people. I want to know what kind of work load you went through in college (mine is currently overbearing... though I could make it through, Im annoyed by some of my teachers and am looking for a wait out lol). I like spending time on my computer, so it seems like it'd be a good job, no? So, in simple terms, what is it like being a programmer/ do you enjoy it/ worth getting degree in. Thanks!
