As a programmer, I have a predictable set of hobbies. I enjoy video games, reading and tinkering with electronics. For many programmers, however, the choice of hobbies is quite widespread and in many cases completely unrelated to their day jobs. Programming question and answer site Stack Overflow has a topic discussing programmer’s hobbies, with a host of interesting posts from commenters.
