Just wondering what other programmer do in their free time.

This is basically what I do in my free time :

1) Procrastinate ( of course )
2) Try to learn more things about programming
3) Practice programing
4) Play NBA2k9 and/or Call of Duty : modern warfare 2 (awesome games)
5) Chill with friends and laugh at stupid things
6) Maybe do some school work.

Just wondering what other programmer do in their free time.

Well in my free time I program all sorts of things. One of my latests projects that I have done is a dehasher. The more cpu you have the more you can dehash in shorter time. A project I am working on is a programming community dedicated to gamemaker (gml). Hopefully will be finished by the time gamemaker 8 is released.

And most importantly in my free time I like to help out on daniweb.

Watch iPlayer

Listen to music.

Sounds like a good hobby? Is there a team to join for this sort of
stuff.

1) mostly work, not much free time for much else thanks to taking an extra A-level
2) something arty, i do love photography - though i'm currently lacking a camera until christmas :P
3) Go iceskating whenever I can, or an icehockey session whenever there's one on
4) Coding, only really do C/C++ and Flash Actionscript 2, but you can see here. [link]
5) Be with friends
6) Read books and magazines

Age of empires is a great classic, still have it :) haven't played it since I was about 12 though.

Age of Empires 2 - That's one of my favorite games too. I don't think the Microsoft Zone is running though so unfortunately we can't vs each other in Age of Empires 2. :( That's a shame.

In my free time, I:

  • attend live soccer matches
  • Listen to music
  • Sleep
  • Solve algorithmic problems

I just realized I don't play computer games like most programmers do, maybe it's time I should move away from the linux console

Free time, what's that? :)

OK, I get even more tattoos, drink beer (real ale only, Spitfire and Betty Stoggs mainly), listen to music and go to gigs (rock/metal/goth stuff mainly), lust after motorbikes I can't afford and spend time with my family (4 kids, 2 grandkids) - oops, nearly forgot to mention that I support Leicester Tigers Rugby Club and go watch them whenever I can.

yes, spitfire is good. Bombardier is good too, as is Fullers and TEA.

I game, (try to) make games, watch hockey, skateboard, and pretty much do too much other stuff which drastically reduces the time I have to do anything. I don't know if that made sense.

I was told it is safest to just say "I work for the Treasury Department" so i don't scare anyone away - I am going to be a customer service rep for the IRS.

In my free time i would like to go for my old friends. They are my best friends.

And don't forget to mention that you like to spam your signature-links in your free time! It appears to be quite a hobby of you :icon_frown:

I've recently taken to designing board games in my spare time. It seems like the only project I can actually complete without spending gobs of time looking for people to help just to have them bail anyway.

I hope you don't take offense to this, but I hate history. I find it
boring and useless for me, at least. I am surprised that a CSE-er finds history intriguing, unless its the history related to CSE-ish things.

Ha ha, no offence taken. We all have different likes and dis-likes.

I'm not really a CSE-er anyway, if at all. It's purely a passing interest. So to be honest the last three points in that list are really, things I USED to like doing. Ha ha.

Points 2 and 3 occupy most of my time at the mo.

-Flash and actionscript 3.0.

I still use AS2, is it worth learning AS3 now? So far I've hardly seen something made with AS3 which can't be made with AS2, but I wouldn't mind learning a new language if it's good enough.

Alright there mate.

I would definitely consider learning AS3. Fortunately for me I learned AS3 first so I won't have to unlearn any AS2, which is probably what you would have to do.

AS3 is considered a lot like other object orientated languages.

Plus the 3D stuff you can do outweighs all the cons...

Have you ever used stuff like papervision 3d? That's a whole heap of fun.

http://www.gotoandlearn.com/

Has a whole heap of vids for you to look at.

You can download cs4 trial for 30 days but it ain't cheap like...

Okay, cool :icon_razz:

In a way that gives me an advantage, I don't think I have to 'unlearn' much, I've been doing it for years, and probably will continue with it, but that wont stop me from trying a newer version.

Out of curiosity, have you uploaded anything you've made? And if you're interested [link] :P

I'll check out the site, seems good, thanks.
