Glad I Chose Programmer Over Musician

Posted on

So it turns out that iPhone app sales are growing twice the rate of iTunes music. That rocks for us programmers. I have always enjoyed music (and making my own music), but spent more time on computers because I was never the best. I was always an average player and people were more impressed with stuff I would make on the computer.

Especially as I got older, I could make money doing a website, but playing drums in my room for hours on end just left me sweaty. I still love music, but I'm glad I chose the more monetary of the two for a profession.
