in his office typing away

Hi, everyone!
I read a blog:

As a child I sometimes felt as though dad was too busy. Most times he would be upstairs in his office typing away, either working on a book or preparing for the next day’s lecture. I was too young to understand that he was taking care of his family the best way he knew how, by doing the work that he felt so passionate about.

So this 'typing away' here roughly means 'spend time by typing'?

Thanks in advance! :)
