Would You Do Your Hobby For a Living?

Another recent editorial I wrote for SQLServerCentral talks about whether you would be happy doing your hobby for living. For years I considered computers and software a hobby, but for the past ten years or so it’s been a job and as such, less fun than when it was just for fun.

I like working, but the difference between work and a hobby – for me – is that I have to work and battle through stress, frustration, and all the rest. When I’m building something in my workshop and get tired or frustrated, I just put it away, sometimes for a day, sometimes for a month, and return to it when I find the fun it again.


I'm Andy Warren, currently a SQL Server trainer with End to End Training. Over the past few years I've been a developer, DBA, and IT Director. I was one of the original founders of SQLServerCentral.com and helped grow that community from zero to about 300k members before deciding to move on to other ventures.
