I have a wife, a plethora of hobbies, and a salary that lets me enjoy them comfortably. I used to code a boatload when I was in college, but once I graduated, I found that most jobs didn't give a crap what I could do with , they wanted to TRAIN ME to work within their code base.

Right now, I'm spending a ton of time at work ripping out a ton of random JavaScript framework junk that someone implemented "because they knew it really well", without any thought as to how the business would be impacted.

Stop pushing this disgusting thought process. We don't need to live and breathe code to be successful developers.
