Many of us will answer with 'it's our passion'. I agree that it is my passion but a developer positions generally have an excellent work life and environment. Air-conditioning, high-paying, the ability to work individually or group, in office or remote. Now compare that to a construction worker (no offense guys) who work in the blistering heat or freezing cold with intensive physical labor for typically lesser pay (not always).
