I'm trying to say a program (as in something a programmer/程序员） finally works! Is there a way to translate this "works" into chinese?
Could I say 我的代码终于可以了！？ Or is there a way that is more clear what I mean?

Like people already suggested, its good to say:
“跑” as in the sense of "to run" (the program) is a calque from English to Chinese. It's very literal and very easy to understand. Just like "sky craping tower" is loaned and translated literally as “摩天楼” （rub－sky－building）and very much make sense.
