Effective note taking as developer (Video)

#productivity thursday, june 03, 2021

In this video, I’m sharing some note taking tips that made me more productive while developing or while learning a technology.



Some recommendations:

  • Put temporary working note into plain-text files, for easy access and copy-and-pasting

  • Keep your thoughts, hypothesis, and next steps in these clipboard files

  • Have a single place for these files and make them accessible via keystroke (e.g. i3 scratchpad)

  • Keep a logbook of insights and things you’ve learned that day

  • Write small summaries with reminders and pointers when learning a new technology
