Inspired by @bycdiaz's Top 7 post, tonight’s topic is... Memorization and Learning to Code!
Memorization has long been touted as one of the pillars of learning to code effectively, but is that really the case? In the post above, @bycdiaz addresses the anxieties many feel about forgetting concepts and syntax and refutes the idea that good engineers have everything memorized.
- Do you use cheat sheets to help you remember specific syntax or commands? How useful do you find them?
- Are there any IDE features or plugins that you use to reduce the need for memorization?
- Do you find some programming languages easier to memorize than others?
- Any triumphs, fails, or other stories you'd like to share on this topic?
