We learn to code by actually writing code and we did it because we enjoyed it. Now it is my day job and I get to do it a lot more. The only difference being its a lot more Java now.
Jaseem and I have decided to take up a pet project of ours and finish it in a week. Jaseem is writing Conway’s Game of Life in Elisp and I will be implementing a single player AI powered Reversi game in Erlang.

Back in college we used to write code because it was something we enjoyed. Now there is not much that I write, apart from what I do at my day job, and this is an exercise in bringing those glory days back.
