Are you actually working, thinking, resting, chilling

Is it true that a lot of software engineers do like 1 hour's worth of programming and just surf the internet for the rest of the day? Is this why Elon is so hellbent on watching over everyone's screen and checking commits?

At some point your job is not only to write code. It has to be tested, deployed/released, documented. You react to incidents, monitor hell lot of dashboards, create some tickets for future, participate sync ups & interviews, review other people changes, unblock other teams with knowledge you have and they don't. So yeah. Typing code is exactly 1hr a day.
