Recently, I have come across a number of articles regarding the best (and even the worst) music to develop by (or even just to work by) and so I thought I’d throw my 2 cents in regarding the issue. Why you ask (my 1000’s and 1000’s of viewers)? Because it really is an important aspect of writing code.
Although, historically, I’ve been a huge fan of listening to my favorite kind of music, METAL, but more recently, I’ve found a really interesting niche of classical that seems to help me focus even more:
Entre` the Epic Soundtrack:
It’s uplifting and from time to time I feel like Matthew Broderick in Wargames programming the next doomsday machine (that just happens to start with Hello World!), and even if I am struggling to build a new 837 5010 generator using C#, it seems to keep my stress level a tad lower (as can be expected with a ridiculous amount of work to do and approaching deadlines.)
So, that’s my say on the subject. Nothing like compiling source code that works a stanza or two of the The Imperial March.
