Every day is a school day. I love that phrase.
As a programmer and daily resident of the Internet, it really does apply to me. Not a day goes by where I don’t learn something new. It might be a new method in the Ruby language, or a new trick in Rails. It might even be just learning that your favourite App.net client for the iPhone does allow you to save drafts. Really, I just discovered this last week.
The thing is though, I’m usually working at such a pace where I learn something, use it and then forget about it. No more.
You only learn from the things you write down. If you don’t, trying to remember it with the million other thoughts that go through your head that day just makes it impossible. So with that in mind I am aiming to log a today I learned (or TIL) a day.
Mostly this will be programming stuff, but it should feed the my blog for potential development and programming posts. I might even post a summary of the week here if it becomes more than just programming stuff.
I’ll be keeping a log in Journalong for this. I’ll let it you all know how it goes after a month.
