The ability to change the world from your fingertips is something which takes only hours to learn but years to master. These techies have persisted in their dreams and managed to make a mark on the world. They work hard to create magic on screen. They do not care about the money or fame. The only thing that matters to them is that their work should be used by people. They care about creating things which would be helpful for others, they crave joy in small things. A program executed without errors gives them more satisfaction than having a meal at a five star hotel.
