How many hours do people code a day?

  • 3
    Somewhere between 0 and 16 depending on the day and tasks at hand and if I want to work on any pet projects.
  • 1
    Like @C0D4 said, but between 0 and 13.
    I don't do the longer days anymore because it prevents me from being productive the next day.

    @phishhead @FrodoSwaggins somehow those numbers seem funny

    @phishhead yes an no.
    I can do a full 8 hours at work just coding, or that could be split up with meetings, BAU work, or just being in a support role for the QA's.

    Then on top of that I may spend a few hours after work or weekends putting something together for me.

    Depends on the day. Sometimes 15-20 minutes, sometimes a few hours, rare occasions 4+ hours, and sometimes not at all. Mostly the first two and the last.

    It depends on my "productivity per hour" ...
    Sometimes an hour echaust you more than a full day.
    Some other times 5 hours of boring easy tasks will make u want to get off the computer.
    Some other times you are so excited to deliver that you work 14h straight.

    @bashleigh I guess it depends on the day for you, you seem to have a small pause somewhere I guess.

    @C0D4 well you see I work that extra 3-4 minutes. No time to work out how many. Just GO GO GO GO ADD MORE BUSINESS VALUE YOU MONKIES. And I start throwing poo at the screen and smashing the keyboard with my limbs for the whole day. Those 3-4 minutes of my hour are seriously important to the business. Not time for monkey business. Ok I give up none of this shit makes sense

    Around 7hrs Average for me.
    Try a plugin called wakatime it will show you how many hours you’re coding and on which projects.

    It’s available for all major IDEs. It’s really awesome

    Depends on when you have to deliver the code.
    It can be from 1 minute to 24hrs in the day.

    I code 500i hours a day
  • 0
    As a sysadmin the average would be 1 to 2 hours at most on normal days where I need to write scripts or fix existing code :)

    Like, actually? Writing code and not looking at memes and pretending to be busy for the sake of it? 3-5, I would say.

    8 hour day is utter bullshit.

    @msdsk haha same here, but instead of 8 hours a day, I'm doing 9 hours, pls killme
  • 1
    I do part-time internship. (6 hours a day work because Uni)

    Here's 90 days average using a plugin:

    Monday : 5.3 hrs
    Tuesday : 4.7 hrs
    Wednesday : 5.2 hrs
    Thursday : 4.1 hrs
    Friday : 5.3 hrs
    Saturday : 3.3 hrs
    Sunday : 5.8 hrs

    Saturday is holiday in our country.
    430 hours in last 90 days (work only).

    this accounts only for inside the vs code, coding. and excluding personal projects.

    using this.

    I'm guessing it's an imaginary number but an electronic version? 😋 Or maybe my mathetmatics is lacking

    (uint) -1

    Probably 5ish due to c++ compile times

    On a regular 40 hours week, generally I get between 45 to 60 hours.
    Actual Coding time, generally ranges from 0 to 1h during the 8h at office plus 2, 3 h straight at night.
    All the rest is diluted between meetings, phone calls, MR reviews
    A good day of remote work can go up to 7h coding
