For me development and music go hand in hand. Started playing guitar at 7 started programming at 10. Failed at being a musician but never stopped writing and playing. I find the creative act of songwriting and especially exploring songwriting in different genres is an excellent balance to my dev job. I love that it flexes different aspects of my creativity and allows me to exercise the other side of my brain. More than once I’ve solved a particularly thorny dev problem by grabbing a guitar or banging away on a music keyboard. Drums can also be a tremendously therapeutic workout as well.
Very cool, that definitely makes sense. I think being able to express ourselves creatively is so crucial. It makes a big difference in my daily life as well, and is super therapeutic.
