How I learn new technology

Posted on 23 November 2021

Over the years I've used several different editors and learned several different programming languages and technologies. The problem often seems to be that I'll only need it for a short while, just long enough to figure out how it all works and then I shelve it, sometimes for a a year or two, and then I'll need to use it again at which point I'll have to re-learn it all over again. I'm a JavaScript developer by trade and D3.js seems to be one of those projects. It is one of the more challenging libraries I have to use. I really enjoy using it, and it only takes me a day or two before I start remember how it all works again.

tldr; I have created a Github Gist that captures the setup and configuration, key-binds, formatting, and GTD chart if you just want a reference.
