Genuinely curious here. Why so many monitors man? 😀

2000+d streak on GitHub

because 5 eyes :)

I like it, and I think it's pretty productive for development with a big asterisk. The asterisk is that 90% of my day I'm only using two monitors and my laptop screen.

Three years ago, I knew I wanted dual monitors (two on the left), so I ordered two at the same time to have the same brightness, resolution, and other settings.

I run my IDE full screen with a few columns to see my code side-by-side. I normally split-screen another monitor to see what I'm working on and have docs up at the same time. I usually use a live-reload tool so I can see my changes without every leaving my IDE so I can glance over to view it. On my laptop screen, I run iTerm 2 full-screen.

The monitor on the far right was my previous "big" monitor that I have had for 10+ years, which I mostly use as an entertainment screen. It still works well, and I run an HDMI switch off of it. I have an Intel Skull NUC running Linux, Apple TV (works great as a fourth screen or to cast from my iPhone or iPad), a Nintendo Switch, and it's useful for random stuff.

My two-year-old son uses my iPad Pro (far left), but I was charging it on my desk, so I left it in there.

Pro-tip: Find what works for you. Some people do better with one big screen with multiple desktops. I find desktop switching to be distracting, so I mostly avoid it. I like seeing everything spread out and in their place. Follow your Arrow, though. There is no one size fits all answer for everyone as long as you can limit your distractions.

Haha no. I normally use my MacBook Pro, but when I'm in the Netherlands I use my iMac I've got stored here.

How do you disagree with people’s feedback?

Interesting Jeff! 👍 I don't usually listen to podcast these days, but definitely put this episode into the list.

Thanks a lot for pointing out! 🙏

Well said Jeff! A good mindset to have for sure. Love the tip to make a card and archive it eventually. 👌🏻

Ironically, I just heard an interesting take on this Art of the Product Podcast about 16:15 in. They discuss feedback amongst founders which is interesting.

I think you'd like about 20:45 in. They shift to their thoughts on how hard feedback is to take and how much gold is easy to overlook or dismiss from it.

I've just updated the landing page copy, video, and alike (thanks @marc for feedback 😀). Does anyone want to jump in and roast it again?

Much better now 👏

Got any feedback, bug reports, or suggestions for WIP?

Hey Marc!

Can we have a weekly report of what we've done throughout the week via the weekly digest? There should be a graph to show the number of tasks that have been done, and all trends that motivate us towards the following week.

How does it sound? 🙂

What are you reading?

What's good about it man?

The basic hypothesis of the book is that sudden high-impact events shape the world much more than planned or predicted events. But, as with all good books, I can't tell you in a few words why it's so good.
