Are you a night owl coder?

As far as I met coders worldwide, almost everyone prefers to work in the night. I myself, can't think and work efficiently at daylight, but after 6-8pm, I start to "wake up" and it happened a lot that I coded till 5am. I am definitely not a morning person. What about you?

I am a "morning person". I have no problems to get up at 6 o'clock in the morning and to begin my productive time very early. Disadvantage of this is that if you get up early, you also will get tired early in the evening.


Im both! :D Sometimes I will stay up late, but most of the time I am waking up early to learn a couple lessons in my current course or write a small code, or answer questions, then go to school.


I use to have to force myself to be to work by 10 AM, but had no problem still being there 24 hours later. I wasn't a morning person for most of my life. Now, sleep is difficult so being up for the day at 4 AM isn't.



i am a night owl coder too, same happens to me, great ideas come to me only after 7 pm


Same here, I have a hard time getting out of bed before 9 am, but have no problem staying up until 4 or even 5 in the morning, just coding away! Seems like all the good ideas hit me after 7 pm anyway


I'm more of a night coder too, but early mornings also work nicely for me. I think it is psychological, a te when I am certain no one is going to call or disturb mind feels relaxed enough to enter a deep state of concentration.


I used to prefer nights but that was a number of years ago before I became a Dad and sleeping in ceased to exist. I get up anywhere between 5am-7am even on weekends. I'm into running and cycling so my brain is often ready to go after morning exercise. It's currently 10:30pm and I should be asleep but I'm procrastinating and plodding around on here.


I can work well both on mornings and evenings, but I am decidedly a no-heavy-lunch person :-)


Night Owl! Can be morning but mostly night depending on schedule
