Sam Ringleman Ask Me Anything

The passion of the people that I work with. When I was learning to code I knew I loved it. Then I got my first job, and realized very quickly that I worked with some of the most brilliant people. I had to keep up, and it was intimidating. It still is intimidating. I love it though because instead of being surrounded by people constantly complaining about their job. I get to hear and take part of conversations about solving very difficult things. Designing complex systems, coming up with elegant solutions to strange problems. The people blow me away every day and I love it.
