Discussion on: Do I need to code in my free time to be a good developer?

Though I agree with most of the points, "Good developer" is a subjective phrase. The discussion is inefficient if we are all talking about different kinds of "Good Developers"

For example, a good developer in FAANG vs a good developer in a local startup might have different standards. So, it's all about context.

Maybe we can dig deeper and think why we and other stakeholders under context need good developers. Everybody has their own agenda, how can we as a developer be valuable with the agendas? Upon reaching a balance point of these stakeholders can we have a more productive /effective output.

keep improving and keep bringing value to your environments, that's my version of good development.
