What do you do while you develop?

Posted 01 September 2010 - 04:31 PM

When I am developing an application I must have my music on, without I get distracted by every single little sound I hear. Whereas if I have my music blaring I concentrate on that and just go with the flow of programming.

Does anyone else have a "ritual" while they program?

I usually have my music also blasting. When thats not on, I put Hulu in the lower-right part of my screen and watch/listen to that while I program.

I usually write code. It makes me more productive.

Me too. Although frequently, I'll pull up my last.fm and listen to internet radio for hours on end.

I try to program in dead silence, and mutter to myself every now and then.

There isn't much music I actually like.

What music do you listen to?

I like Metal, Heavy Rock, and ... Techno. However, I can listen to just about anything and be happy.

I read, code, read, code, read, code. It carries on like that until I either get tired, bored or confused.

I do like to have some background noise though, doesn't really matter what, as long as it's either long or in a loop.

:D
