I have a love–hate relationship with fundamentals. And the easier the task seems to be, the less enjoyable I seem to find it, at least unless I already have a love for the topic at some level. In elementary school, there were fun classes, like recess and lunch for example. But when handwriting class came around, very few kids really liked it, and most of those who did just loved the taste of the pencil lead. But handwriting class was an important part of childhood educational development. Without it, you wouldn’t be able to write on a white board, and without that skill, could you actually stay employed as a programmer? I know I personally am addicted to the smell of whiteboard marker, which might explain more than my vocation.
