I used to make work for myself when there were no issues for me to work on. This came out of a fear of "I must always be working on the codebase". This ended up with a lot of changes that didn't really improve the project's quality. This need to work 24/7 directly on project code was completely in my own head. Now, if there's nothing pressing to work on, I let myself spend time doing work outside of the project, such as research and reading.
ya I've done that in the past, but not so much these days. These days we have more work than hours. I am still trying hard to make sure that my off hours I do things for myself and not work.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
