Music for Programming?

Filed under: Interesting Sites — Suramya @ 3:41 PM

As some of you know, I love listening to music and am usually listening to music in the background when working/coding as the music serves to filter out the background noise and lets me focus. I got into the habit of doing this at work at my first company where I had a really loud co-worker who just wouldn’t stop talking. I usually put my playlist on shuffle and listen to all sorts of music when working (Kishore Kumar, Lady Gaga, Ke$ha, Boney M etc etc).

Apparently other folks do the same thing and think that listening to music while coding is good and helps you concentrate. Found this entire website called musicForProgramming(); which has hour long mix tapes intended for listening while programming to aid concentration and increase productivity. I tried the first tape for about 5 mins and then called it quits. Unfortunately the music annoyed me more than it helped me concentrate because it was just a bunch of strings, lutes etc and I prefer music with more rhythm & beats.

However plenty of other folks have recommended this site so you should check it out and see it helps you pretend to work more efficiently.
