Is Multitasking Effective for Your Work as a Developer

No, thinking otherwise is probably disillusion.

For me, multitasking is just me getting distracted. It's one thing to be hyper focused and doing multiple things, but with 1 topic/goal/subject in mind, and another to bounce around.

I used to think multitasking got more done, but I came to realize focused work was more effective.

Its easy to get distracted when the work isn't engaging and I've found that to be the biggest factor.
