I was a kid there was nothing more exciting to me than playing around with the old broken computers and dreaming about building my own computer game.

However, things have changed and I quit programming.

One of the reasons why I decided to quit programming is the reason why I'll tell you in this video.

Software development is definitely a LUCRATIVE field. A lot. And it can really make you lazy and lose ambition in life.

There is nothing wrong with taking this path in life, but it's like not waking up from The Matrix.

In today's video, I'm going to share why you SHOULDN'T become a software engineer.
