I'm wondering - do developers have similar hobbies outside of IT?

For example, my main hobbies are:
- Brewing Beer
- Distilling Spirits
- Drinking copius amounts of alcohol to numb the pain of being a developer
- Gardening / Horticulture
- Martial Arts

    Like a lot of sports.

    I'm looking at getting the lego boost, and have the best of both worlds πŸ˜…


    But I recommend pulling it out from time to time and enjoying the little things in life.

    @Rikan hobbies are things you enjoy doing and do on a regular basis.

    Your son isnt a hobby. Playing with your son can be a hobby
