Get about 7 to 8 hours of sleep a day, it doesn't matter when during the day you sleep. Just have a regular schedule. That's the most important thing. There are not more working hours in a day when you get up early, or late. Anybody who claims otherwise is talking bullshit. The (regular) amount of sleep you need differs between people.

As a software developer one of the most important things to do before sleeping is: winding down from work. Make sure you don't have a problem in your head you want to solve, this will keep you awake. It's not caffeine that keeps you awake, it's the brain activity.

I go to bed mostly around the same time, and I wake up mostly around the same time. I don't use an alarm or anything.
