C0D4422225dI work 8-4 (same but not he same) and don't study much.
But when I need to shift / upskill into a new area, by damn my time out of work starts getting consumed with small projects and what not to practise with.
This is a field of continuous learning, so yes you can get away with it, but should you not improve your knowledge?
Absolutely. If anything it ends up being the case that some people never really bother to learn more.
But it is indeed possible and completely acceptable to not want to have this shit take up your entire time.
C0D4422225d@rantsauce I don't need to learn something new all the time,
To much useless knowledge doesn't get you anywhere. Learn what you need, when you need.
But as for escaping it outside of work, not usually unless the place you work allows you to dedicate some work hours for personal training.
vane52464dThere are technologies that change often and technologies that stay the same almost all the time.
Learn and get a job in those that are not changing much.
EchoM213dI work 8-4:30 and if there's something I need to learn to do my job they allocate time and resources for me to do it in working hours. I never have to spend time outside of work doing work things if I don't want to. It exists and I wish it were the standard everywhere. Good luck to you, friend.
