re: Touch Typing- The Most Important Skill For Developers Nobody Talks About VIEW POST

re: Typing is definitely an important software development skill, but hardly the most important one. I do plenty of typing, but I do far more thinking,...

That's not the point of the article though; It's not about effectively saving time over the day, but not losing your line of thought in those rare moments when you actually do have to type a bunch of code.

The point is that typing needs to be friction-less, so it doesn't get in the way.


Fair point. I've seen far too many people obsess over perfectly minimizing the amount of characters that they type (rather than optimizing their high-level flow), that that's what I read into this article too.
