I find it acts as a good brain reset if I feel stuck. Completing the cube is a minute and a half (sadly no speed cuber here, but probably a good thing in this context) where I have to focus on the cube and not my current coding problem.
I have had more than one AHA! moment when looking back at the code after doing the cube.
Glad I'm not the only one, solving the Rubik's Cube instead of ranting when stuck.
And it really does help, I've had several “AHA!“ moments myself, when looking back at the screen after solving the cube.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
