In this tutorial, we'll Learning How To Code The Old Fashioned Way. One day the language or framework that you are using will go out of style and eventually you’ll need to pick up a new skill set.
There are a ton of articles written to help new programmers build their skills and succeed in a fast-changing and high-paying industry. The ability to learn new and complex things quickly is key to succeeding in the tech industry, which is always changing at a fast pace. One day the language or framework that you are using will go out of style and eventually you’ll need to pick up a new skill set.
Most of the articles giving advice to new programmers is a bit redundant. You’ve read a bunch of articles on the importance of the pomodo technique, deliberate practice and long stretches of uninterrupted work as tools to become a 100x developer. Ironically none of these articles mention the oldest and most effective tool for learning.
Notetaking may seem like a tedious and old-fashioned task, especially when you're jumping back and forth between your keyboard and monitor, but it is the best way to learn lots of new material quickly.
We didn’t evolve using keyboards, these are a relatively new tool. Writing on the other hand has been around for much longer and it is simply the most natural way to learn.
Obviously, you don’t want to handwrite 100+ lines of code. So what should you take notes on?
