Explain this to me...
When I was a green developer, I used to go through this "thing": developing got me bored. It made me sleepy. I wanted to get up and go do something else instead of cracking my head trying to solve whatever it was that was bothering me.
Yeah, I still get it periodically. It's seems to be directly proportinal to my understanding of the problem and inversely proportinal to the weather.
I feel compelled to point out that I can, indeed, spell proportional... why is that?
Because, _, you desire our respect. And even if we don't know who we are, we can still mock you :-)
Oh the irony... "even if we don't know who you are"...
It's not only programming. I learned a foreign language while in a foreign country, by practicing it as often as I could, and the mental effort of retraining my brain to think in that language made me physically exhausted.
I think it's that learning burns a lot of calories, which would make one sleepy. Perhaps creating new neural pathways makes old ones weaker, so you get fuzzy? I've had the same thing happen.

Just the opposite. Now I get bored, never used to.
Ehm... perhaps this is obvious to some but what is a 'green' developer?
green is a term used to describe something/one that is not quite ready for the big time.
We actually paint all the new monkeys green. After a while the paint fades and we assume they now know something... takes about a year.
Learning Ada had that effect for me. See:
Maybe it is just me, but I'm the opposite way round. I used to be young and enthusiastic, now I'm old and apathetic.
