Discussion on: Can coding just be a job or does it have to effect my whole lifestyle?

Of course it's alright for coding to just be a job. It's always ok for you to do what is best for your life.

That said, I do miss the olden days where coding was a way of life and not just a means to earn a paycheck. I can't help but think the world is losing something beautiful by coding becoming just another profession instead of a niche for passionate nerds to express their love of software.

I get what you're saying. But I don't think that is the case. Coding is still a way of life for some. So don't worry, that beauty has not been lost, is just more uncommon to witness due to the fact that many are jumping into this endeavour for the wrong reasons.
