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.

See all of the posts in the 30 days of writing project.
