Everyone loves music, whether you're feeling sad, happy, and, of course, while your coding. My time at an AI startup, I observed the developers as they worked. Okay no, I wasn't being a creep, just an Executive Assistant finding her way through another startup.
What I found most interesting was that in order to fully focus on coding, music was their way to zone out. Literally, there were days I found myself super bored because all the guys, including our CTO, wore headphones all nodding to their favorite song. Imagine that!
It wasn't until I began coding, taking courses on Udacity, music was the perfect outlet. With the music aloud and the world's volume at 0, I was in full effect, focusing on what was in front of me.
I must say this truly helped me! Music and code go hand and hand: you're able to listen to something that keeps you going and fully tune into another that needs all of your attention. Coding is like writing a story, you need full focus in order to create the perfect story. The perfect story flows well, provides visuals, and leaves you coming back for more.
Music is love and I love music, I thought it would be great to create a Spotify playlist for the coder in you! This playlist includes all types of music that I listen to because duh every type of song provides a different energy.
So get into complete coding mode, tune into the playlist, and enjoy!
What do you listen to while coding? I'd love to know, comment below!
