How many hours a week do you code?

Survey period: 1 Jun 2015 to 8 Jun 2015

Right now, I do pretty much spend my 40 hours a week coding.
At the most there is a 30 minute status meeting.

When I move to another project, that may change.
I have been on projects that require more team coordination, system integration and politicking than coding.

And then...

I go home and I am pretty certain that I spend at least 20 hours of my time when I get home coding things that I want to do or learn.

I have a strict policy at home where I avoid meetings, replying to emails and TPS reports Wink | ;)
