One of the few things we get to take with us from this life is the intelligence we reach, according to this scripture in Doctrine and Covenants, section 130:
18. Whatever principle of intelligence we attain unto in this life, it will rise with us in the resurrection.
The beautiful part is that the next verse indicates the recipe for attaining this intelligence:
19. And if a person gains more knowledge and intelligence in this life through his diligence and obedience than another, he will have so much the advantage in the world to come.
So, through being diligent and obedient to the laws one is following (in the case of programming, the rules of the language you choose to learn), we can attain an intelligence that will rise with us in the next life. Sweet!
