How Many Hours Do You Code In a Day During a Crisis

coding during a pandemic

At the time of writing this, I was under locked down due to the coronavirus. There was not a lot that I could do to pass the time. I could waste time on youtube or browse the latest viral news. Instead, I decided to code and learn something new while I’m at it. Yeah yeah, “overachiever over hurr”. What? I like to code. Coding and A LOT of free time is a perfect combination.

For the last week or so, I have put in an average of 6-8 hrs a day ≈ a full day job without the pay.

So what about you? What crisis are you in right now? How has that affected your productivity?

To be honest, my hours at coding have doubled in this crisis situation.
The only problem is since I am coding at this level, I facing some bugs which are taking a long time for me fix.
If only someone could help me out with some frontend web!

I am currently developing on HTML+CSS+JS. I need help in this stack.
Actually, I am stuck with some pieces of code which I am unable to figure out how to get them working.

It is probably best if you follow me and we can start a private chat. I don't want to overcrowd the thread.

I have been coding 8-9 hours per day in order to finish a couple of opened projects ASAP. I'm almost done now and, as the two other projects I was about to start working on have been postponed because of the covid-19 crisis, I'm afraid I'm going to have a lot of hours to work on side projects.

“I'm afraid I'm going to have a lot of hours to work on side projects“ , the sentiment is mutual 😄
