My first real programming job out of college was for the company I'm at now. I left for just over a year, and then came back.

The first "real" project I did here (in 2010), is what made them think of me as a programmer who could actually write software rather than a data processor who needed to write vba hacks. It was a website for account management to take bonus money and redeem it as gift cards, or varius other options. It just came up in a meeting today that they will no longer have a need for that "module" in their show this year.

That means I wrote a piece of software that worked as expected, and lived it's life without getting modified, until it was no longer needed for that particular problem. The fact that it never needed modified is exciting to me, but it also feels good to have a piece of software last and be no longer needed. It's like a feeling of closure.

The project that gave me developer status at this company is now being put to rest Smile | :)
