Even Better (Java Independent) Interview Question
Parag Shah in recent comments suggested even better interview question: "Would you like to be a programmer when you are 70 ?" It is a very good one. I would even increase the age to 80 :-). I prefer, however, programming over sudoku or watching television - so why not? We will probably have Java 50update99 at that time :-). I have to update my slides now...
Speaking about motivation, what about: "Would you like to be a manager when you are 60?" :-).
lol: java 50plus u10 senior release (server vm only)

I definitely agree with Parag Shah's question. I would definitely program even when I have a family of my own or even a grand children (I am still 24 yrs old though haha!)
I can't discern why some people ditch development work when they attain "higher" titles/position. In my opinion, isn't attaining higher titles/position mean just having additional responsibilities?
A motivated developer will always remain a motivated developer at heart.
Titles/Position may have changed, but the motivation/passion should not.
