What do you listen When you code?

Typically, the playlists/music from my Spotify Artist profile (and primarily EDM—such as trap and dubstep, in conjunction with hip-hop, rap, and a multitude of artist groups).


Or, sometimes, peace and quiet is also fairly nice.

For many years I've listened to techno/dubstep while programming. Now I mostly listen to retro video game soundtracks and remixes. I love 8-bit Arcade!

However, I always choose to work outside and listen to nature when it's nice out and the neighbors aren't mowing.

For light coding where focus doesn't matter I listen to podcasts.

For more concentrated work:

Code radio is awesome, classical is always great, mellow beats playlist on Spotify is great too, and some days nothing is better than good heavy metal!

I try listening to my surroundings. I like working in cafes/coffee shops/food courts/libraries. There's always something going on around to pay attention to when I need a break.

Exactly. Silence. I cannot "hear" my own thinking if there's music :-)
