What will you do after retiring from code?

Life isn't all code, but it does take a lot out of life.

Share your deep desire aside from code that you'll likely pursue after you've retired.

Mine: Designing houses.

I can tell what I’m doing now after retiring from code position: creating the new web.

I'm counting on that for my future generations. My child's future is in your hands.

It's a great responsibility. I will be careful.

Never really considered it. I mean, I'm one of those people that turned a childhood hobby into a career. And, even had I not been able to make that leap, I probably would have continued to have it as a hobby. I don't know that, just because I give up the daily-grind, I'll ever not participate in technically-oriented hobbies.

Time and other things. If I ever get a remote job, I'll propably join some ONG that teaches code to marginalized people in my city.

I think it would be cool to teach all I know and my experience to other coders. Also maybe learn something like making short films and reading books😄

Retirement seems far and unlikely....but I'll put that aside for a minute.

I'd love to be traveling or retiring on a beach somewhere.

When I retire from writing code completely it will be because I have moved off this mortal coil so I will just rest.

This is going to sound weird, but I want to take care of homeless cats. Make a shelter or something like that.
