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


It's fine but don't think that is all you will need to do to become great. I have been developing for over 20 years and the easiest way to tell if someone is a mediocre developer if they don't code outside of work.

Mediocrity will get you a good job and stable career. But it you want to be great at what you do you need to expose yourself to as much code as possible written by different people at different levels.

This is almost like saying it's perfectly fine not going to school for Computer Science or better Software Engineering. Without the proper education you will only be able to reach mediocrity.

What if Lebron James said I only play basketball during games? Having a passion for something is what separates the good from the great.
