And I think the reason I find reading code boring is that the signal to noise ratio of most code is quite low, at least in terms of learning from the code.
I don't mean that most code serves no purpose, but I do think that the majority of code you read isn't going to teach you new things.
I'm not suggesting reading code is a bad idea. However, I do think that it may not be the best use of your time.
Does anyone here read code for fun or just to learn new techniques?
