Discussion on: Programmers who only code at work

Just my 2 cents. I am passionate at writing clean code, making things better and learning new tech, but I also have plenty of other hobbies that I love spending time on. In addition, spending time with my family, including our dog is high priority to me, after all, I spend more than 40 hours per week away from my family. I also spend a big chunk of weekend time volunteering at a local animal shelter as well. So given a limited time you have, you just have to decide what is more important to you. I agree with other readers, being passionate about programming is not highly correlated to having side projects :)
