This may be the wrong place to ask this, but I have a software dev/engineer lifestyle question. If this indeed the wrong place, please redirect me elsewhere before marking this as spam.
Is it possible to make half the avg soft eng salary working half of the time? For example, if I wanted to spend the vast majority of my time working on a different project, but still needed some income to support a minimalist lifestyle, would it be plausible to make 40k a year working 20-30 hours a week as opposed to making 80k a year working 40-60 hours a week?
Are there other tech fields that I can transfer to outside of software development in order to make this more likely?
