The meaning of "cranking out code"

Discussion in 'Language & Culture' started by Roman Pushkin, Oct 8, 2018.

  1. I am software engineer in USA (moved from another country). In informal conversations with colleagues I've heard the phrase "cranking out code" (or something similar).

    I googled it, and Urban Dictionary says it's

    The act of crying and wanking (masturbation)at the same time.

    However, "cranking out code" is quite common if you google it.

    I'm confused about the usage and don't know if it's safe to use at work, and the meaning of it. Can you please advice if can use it, and the exact meaning.
