Re: How do you maintain your coding skills?

I have projects that I spend time on in the free time. I think the more a coders fascination with a problem / tool / framework, the deeper the motivation to learn and develop ones skills. Another strategy is just to have a textbook of interesting algorithmic problems to hack through - this can become addictive, though, and swallow up *much* more time than one originally allotted for the task. Generally, I have not yet been in a role where the architecture was so elevated from the code that I didn't need to write code at all. From interface stubs to database schemas, everything boiled down to code that I had to write or co-write. Maybe I have been fortunate but this is really how I would like to work with architecture. Satisfaction from writing good code - if one doesn't feel that then I think it is difficult to work with code at all! If one does, then it is hard to keep the fingers away from the keyboard, architect or not.
