Submission + - What is it really like to be a developer?

kungfujesus writes: am a computer science student and am starting to realize that while I love programming and computer science, I am starting to have doubts as to whether i would be happy doing it as a profession.

Background: I consider myself to have an aptitude for it and have done it for many years and know a variety of languages from C, C++, Java, D, and am learning erlang

Aspects which i would like to inquire about:
- Hours
- Job Satisfaction
- Longevity (ie: what happens when you become an older developer?)
- How much of your time must be devoted to learning new technologies to be competive?

I know it pays well, but are you happy as a developer?
