Spend Less Time Coding

Spend less time coding. Really? Why?

I enjoy coding. I really enjoy coding. I don’t understand why there’s so many services out there that want developers to spend less time coding. Surely their product has a lot of time spent coding? And the developers probably loved producing it. It’s bizarre.

I understand that many people want projects out of the door as quick as possible to get paid on time. But where has the pride gone that you take in your work if something else is pretty much writing everything for you? Where is the problem solving, those mental summersaults that your mind takes? These, for me, help me get through the weeks and months of a long project with a sense of pride, achievement and purpose.

So please, let’s start saying no to these “spend less time coding” statements and turn away.
