Most Rewarding Part of Being a Scrum Developer?


The Joy of Being a Scrum Developer

When attempting to unravel the heart of Scrum Development, now and then, I’m asked one question: “What truly drives a Scrum Developer?”

It’s a thought-provoking question and one close to my heart and sparks a unique answer and one I genuinely relish addressing.  ✨

Build with Purpose

For me, and I imagine for many out there, the pinnacle of satisfaction stems from this simple concept: Building stuff that matters to people.  🔨 

Just imagine dedicating hours, days, and weeks to projects, only to ask, “Does what I’m doing even matter?”   🚀 

If our work doesn’t resonate, evoke feelings, or solve problems, then what’s the point?

Why rise with the sun, chug that morning coffee, and dive deep into projects if not for the purpose of creating something impactful? 🌟

Fuel of Passion 

It’s about that inherent human desire for our work to be meaningful.  Our commitment to a task, our zest to comprehend the nuances, and the urge to sprinkle creativity arise from a fundamental place – the knowledge that our work has meaning.

It’s not just about code or features; it’s about the lives we touch.  🔥

It’s that profound understanding that if our work matters to someone out there, it fuels our drive, enhancing the quality and creativity of our endeavours.  🎯

Seeking Meaning in Every Line of Code

That, to me, is the heart and soul of Scrum Development.

The next time you embark on a project or work, remember to ask: Does this matter?  And if it does, channel that realisation into doing your best, most creative work.
