My Spotify Playlist For The Coder In You

My Spotify Playlist For The Coder In You

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. 

Coding is like writing a story, you need full focus in order to create the perfect story.

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!

Happy Coding!
