How Many Hours Per Day Do Programmers Actually Work?
Too Long; Didn't Read How Many Hours Per Day Do Programmers Actually Work? How long do programmers actually work per day? Most people would say that the answer is 8-9 hours per day. Most programmers work 8 hours a day, but in those 8 hours, you have a lunch break, team meeting, and then the work that needs to be done on a computer, which is coding, researching, and all the other things that go with that. If you are working for someone else on the project that you don’t particularly like, your motivation won't be high and you’ll probably spend more time browsing the web than working.
