I’m a big fan of music. I listen to it all day, everyday. The radio is on in our house from the time the first person gets up until the time the last person goes to bed. It’s been like that for as long as I can remember.
Although the radio is on, I prefer to play my own music when designing or coding. I’ve burn the majority of my cd’s onto the computers hard drive, so I’ve got a good selection to choose from.
Generally I like to listen to upbeat music (Gigi D’Agostino, Daftpunk, Fatboy Slim, Prodigy, etc) when coding and alternative music (Radiohead, Ocean Colour Scene, Keane, Snow Patrol, etc) when designing.
Have you got any favourite music for when you design or code?
