re: It's perfectly fine to only code at work, don't let anyone tell you otherwise. VIEW POST


I have to admit that when hiring, I do look for things like public repos or contributions, but I never fault a developer if they don't have any, or prefer to only code while working.

For me, "Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence." So if I DO find a public repo or other projects that they contribute to in their spare time, it helps me see their passion in the same way a graphic designer may paint or sculpt out of the office. If a developer doesn't contribute in their spare time or code outside of the office, I wholeheartedly agree that is NOT an indication in any way that they are dispassionate about development.
