I code none stop. depending on the demand. one interesting things about coding if you are not making genuine money with it. you tend to think about using the skills for evil.

is like someone who get knowledge to make fire arm but has no government petronage so it start making it for militant in the dark market

In my area we have no light but I have the opportunity of staying in one filling station near our house due to the cordial relationship I have with manager of the station..
I went indoor to code for 10hours per day
A programmer must ready to code for hours


That is quite innovative, i hope you find a way to say thank you someday. People like them are the little heroes we all need at some point.

It depends.

Is there electricity? Have I eaten? Am I in the right frame of mind? Is there something else important and urgent that needs my attention?

I'd say 4 hrs non stop or 8 hrs with breaks.

It depends man. For today have done an average of say 5 hours. There are times when its more than 12 hours in a day. When am not so busy with office job, i might have a side job that is time consuming so i try to finish ASAP and as a result will work more. At other times both the office and the side job might require a huge chunk of my time, so at that point, will work for more hours say 10 hours in a day. Bugs sometimes keeps these eyes open all through the night and after working all through the day. So it depends

Don't be confused. Am a programmer fullstack developer. Go for software engineering (development). That's what is lucrative now. Companies home and abroad including government agencies will need your skills. Infact in just 2yrs of my experience,once I mention programming,or software development,and marketing in an interview,even banks can't resist me. I choose to work from their pay. Am working with MTN and am comfortable with the pay now. If you have a child writing jamb,or yet to,advice him or her to go study computer science or engineering and focus in software development. The future is software,and you'll be glad to thank me later. A friend of mine,a doctor is earning five zeros (precisely 180-200k monthly),
his car and mine no be mates. You hardly see a software developer in MTN,Glo, Airtel, Google, Amazon,yahoo mail,even in gov.offices like Jamb,waec,inec,and other companies earning less than 700k at minimum a month. It's not blood money,that's where the world is relying on currently. Goodluck as you make your choice.

Assuming there's electricity the whole day. Code from morning till 12, relax my brain, eat, continue from 1 to 4, relax, take bath, continue from 7pm to 11. Sub night plan do download whatever video I want to, or for package upgrades. Sleep

Coding is an investment in your future.

The more the hours you put in, the better you become.

I have a Friend that gets Jobs of 250-500k Evey month on average.
I know when he started 3 years ago.

He recently passed Turing interview and is getting freelance jobs that is bigger than Yahoo Yahoo.
250k - 400k is like the basic salary for a mid level reactjs developer. Some people make more than 2m per month writing code. I know few here on nairaland that does.

I spend 12hrs daily learning how to code. buh i advise, don't just learn, build sth. A developer is more like a problem solver. Give urself a task, try to solve some problems with codes. Who knows you might build sth unique. I just took up this task.
just wana know what can a developer build with coding

Why confuse people? What do you stand to gain? Did he tell you he is made? A young man is putting his sweat equity, learning discipline and getting technical problem solving dept, the type that comes from long hours of coding, and you are here talking about diminishing returns.

Go read the book, the outliers by Gladwel, and Mastery by Robert Greene, then you'll know the place of time in conquering an art and mastering it.
Most people just learn html and css then run off the street as the latest "web developer". Tomorrow they will say no job

Hi, if someone tells you not to work hard and you follow what the person says, then you are the cause of your own problem. He is not a toddler, that comment i made is my on view, i feel i have gotten to that stage where i need to spend lesser time on my screen.

18hrs in a day shocked or one week? If it's a day, man that's extreme. So you have less than 4 hrs sleep everyday? Also how do you track time spent?


You obviously haven't built anything since you don't have an appreciation for long hours of work. Developers spend hours sometimes days trying to fix a bug. It's an obsession, it keeps you awake. With a problem up in your head, you don't feel happy going to sleep. And finally you fix it, the joy is priceless and you feel accomplished.

That's the life of a developer, it's not a path for a lazy man. Wozniak didn't single handedly build a computer and code an OS from scratch just by working two hours a day.
And if for any reason you see the hours you spend as some kind of suffering, then maybe this path isn't for you.

Lastly, I see a lot of people put the cart before the horse when they emphasize techpreneur and building a project you can commercialize as a beginner.

My suggestion: as a beginner, concentrate on really understanding your art: the art of coding. Learn it well to be able to get a good job in a tech company. Even if you are working on a project, which I highly recommend, let it be for the purpose of learning and boosting your profile. When you land a job, you'll learn what it takes to build and run a successful tech agency hands-on.

Anybody can code a profile matching platform like facebook, or a news forum like Nairaland but how many can run the business of facebook or Nairaland?
