Creating something of value, creating something for other (non-tech) people, that is actually used, timing it correctly and many more factors are counter intuitive with complexity in software development to a coder/programmer.

In most of my tools I am digging in the code shit and the things colleagues find meaningful - abstractions, abstractions, abstractions - test-ability, change-ability, solid, OOP, compiled, interpreted, reused, readable, garbage collected code, scalability, etc. And all this things probably does matter at some point.

But, in my last tool I've linked reading excel, writing word files and created simple web front end - no CSS, no JavaScript. Nobody gives a shit what is client and what is server, is it binary, is it multi-core, is it optimal, is the code well written as long as the software does what is desired.
