LEARNING TRACKING. As many of you all my learning comes from online sources, tweets, links, articles, videos, etc and I needed a place where I can save the most relevant information I found online but more important a place where I could go back a few months later and will be easy to find snippets, notes, links etc.
I tried a lot of note apps but the main problem is that I wasn’t able to leave notes that contain code snippets that could be searchable I tried: Notes.app, Evernote, OneNote but still didn’t feel quite right for me, so I come with this idea of using Github to track my learning and this is how it works:
1️⃣ I created a GitHub Repo
2️⃣ I create an issue for every “link” I want to save I add code snippets, comments, screenshots, anything I might need
3️⃣ I tag the issue with a very simple approach
4️⃣ And that’s it.
What I like about this:
👑 Is public (wink wink)
🌎 Support markdown, comments, images, pretty much anything you can think of.
👓 The search and filtering features of Github are top of the line.
📱 Mobile support
🖥 I can link other Github repos, issues, branch, etc...
💬 Users can leave comments
So far this approach has been great for me. Would you try? Do you think it will work for you?
