“It was the first ever output on screen, “Hello World”; It was those sleepless nights,
It was the deploying of codes; it was banging of keyboard keys ,
It was the debugging of single error; It was frustration to punch break the Laptop Screens .
We had everything before us and we had nothing before us .”
If you can relate to these feelings then you are developer .
