048: Visualize Your Code (and Practice Anywhere!)
In this episode, Nicole introduces you to an often-overlooked technique for solidifying the programming knowledge you encounter: visualization. I first discovered visualization when in 2017, when I was working as a freelance web developer. I had my first client, but I found myself regularly needing to brush up on what I was learning. Additionally, I was spending a lot of time with my grandfather and found myself away from keyboard quite a bit. Fortunately, there wasn't a massive rush on the project. While I was away from my laptop, I'd think about the code I was writing... as we often do while we're learning. I walked through it in my mind, and made mental notes of things that struck me as unfamiliar or where I experienced uncertainty. What I was doing was visualizing my coding experience. In this episode, you'll learn more about visualization, why it works, and how you can leverage it to practice coding when you're AFK. I hope it's helpful! Read the episode notes!
