You really need to be uninterrupted to code properly.
I always get more done afer everybody else leaves.
It seems my best coding always comes when I can freely concentrate and not be interrupted all the time. The work place and the workday is just one kindergarten classroom like interruption after another.
But when everyone else finally goes home, the phone down the hall stops ringing, doors are not opening and closing, people shuffling back and forth down the hall, THEN can you effectively think and program efficiently. Everything else is just too little and not well thought out.
You have to be able to think about the big picture.
I wish I could have a really quiet place to work all day long.
I despise the phone calls and the interruptions and everybody needing me to do this and that. But it brings in the paycheck. Oh if I could only have a whole day to get all the neat code ideas I think of all worked out.
What's it like for you??
