Studying biology, programming machines ~ 23y old
🦄 Chip Uni What (if anything) do you listen to while you're programming, or doing work that requires a lot of concentration?
🚲 Koen West Recently I have started to use a particular combination of ambient noises with the app Dark Noise (which I can highly recommend), and I now notice that it really gets me in the zone. I have different noises set up for different tasks.

Yo Dude ok, starting the first post with a question, why are you here? i came because i saw it on HN..
🚲 Koen West Jep, here through HN as well. Sticking around because of the snappy feel and the absence of image clutter.

Huw For those who are currently WFH since COVID, how have you found the adjustment?
🚲 Koen West (Not strictly WFH, but also an adjustment) I'm a university student, and I have found online education quite tough. To me, meeting my friends in the lecture halls every day has turned out to contribute a lot to the fun of studying. Now, there is hardly a distinction between course work and free time. In terms of education quality, I don't think the impact is that significant. However, I do _feel_ like it takes me longer to understand/process the same volume of information.

🚲 Koen West What is your favourite terminal emulator? For me: iTerm on macOS, Alacritty on Linux
🧬 Thomas iTerm FTW for OS X
⚪ Ghostis I'm mostly in screen, so anything that doesn't take over Alt, Crtl, and Esc is fine (Ahem, Apple)
