Everybody loves a Post-it note. For organising, taking messages, even project planning. Their versatility makes them perfect for tasks that only require bitesize pieces of information. They're big enough to scribble a few words on, but too small for more than a couple of sentences.
And it's no surprise that digital stickies have become a popular feature of notetaking apps too. Padlet, Google Jamboard and Trello all use their own versions. Breaking down big ideas into smaller, managable chunks makes the most difficult challenges somehow more achievable.
So to try and solve this problem, I've decided to combine the Post-it format with a consistent note taking style; Code-it notes!
If you'd like to use Code-it notes, I'll be sharing them via Instagram initially and building the collection as a Google Slides presentation. To get started, the first 3 have been embedded here on dev.to.
If you have any feedback, or would like to request a topic, I'd be interested to hear it! 👨💻
