Too many monitors
Published on 20 November 2021
A lot of developers I know use a multi-monitor setup. Some people even claim that multiple monitors are essential, but I’ve always struggled with that way of working. I only want to see the application I’m focusing on in front of me.
Earlier this year I upgraded from a 24 inch monitor to a 27 inch and have started working with my laptop closed and tucked away behind everything else. It’s significantly improved my ability to focus and reduces the anxiety I get from seeing all of my open applications.
This post is part of a series of posts in which I write and publish a blog post every day throughout November 2021. There are no constraints on the project and the posts don’t neccissarliy have any connection to each other.
