Developer Journal

David Romero
Don't expect too much, just my Developer Journal.
・1 min read

Here we go. Since the start of my developer career I always wanted to keep a daily Journal. A little space to share in a informal manner my conquers and defeats in the software world.

A day goes by, code gets written and deleted, tabs get open and closed, books get read, and somehow I get a feeling I'm not moving forward. Endless procrastination? YouTube dependency? Information OverFlow ? Overthinking ? dunno

The Daily Entry will have (al least) an overview of

  • Current Project(s) working on
    • Feature or Bug
    • Code snippets, maybe
    • Concepts to learn
  • Useful links
  • Ideas for future me
  • Lessons learned ___

The main idea being, Having to force myself to document my day and review it, also for future references.

Shall we begin...

Hey David, I also try to get myself to keep a developer journal but it didn‘t seem to work out for me yet :) thus, I‘m keen on reading about your experience ;)
How/Where do you plan to journal? Pen/paper, any apps or tools? :)

Why not? I guess is a healthy way to get things out of your head and check the progress on projects. I'm new to so maybe here, there's so many people sharing great stuff. Cheers

Yes, I definitely see the benefits. I‘m struggling to make it a habit and incorporating it into my workflow :)
