Either way, most coders get a thrill from watching The Social Network, largely because the movie portrays the amazing feats one can achieve simply by learning a programming language.

Gibbons hates his job at a software company, and resents dealing with excessive managerial oversight and the everyday minutia of a soulless corporate gig.
