Starting my #friyay the right way #poet
Hooray and happy Friday friends, the weekend is within sight. I've got myself a #coffee and sugar hit to get my #friday started the right way.
Where are my scaffolds?! 🚀 the first question I had when developing a #Laravel App. Coming from the wonderland of #RubyOnRails I just thought it was "too much work" to create a #CRUD from zero, when we should have a scaffold that at least do the heavy lifting for you to continue tweaking and improving. .
#Rails automates the basic development tasks really nice and pretty, helping you to focus on the code logic and other more "important" things than just creating a simple html form. 😴
Thankfully if you google a bit you will find a simple crud-generator by appzcoder, where you can quick and simple generate the basic template with its table in the database, and I can now focus only on the #frontend functionality.
Aaand,... Finally with some motivation and getting things done really quick! 👨💻

At the moment I am working with my colleagues on a product vision for the next year. In our company, everything is agile, so we work in the Google Design Sprint and come within a week from the idea to user feedback. So far, a very intense week and we are all curious if all the work pays off. (Will talk about it tomorrow)
Today we took a few minutes and watched the sunset from the roof terrace. Really stunning.
I'm sure losing your keys is not something you always think about. But when you do lose 'em, it's definitely a painful process 🤦🏻♂️Well #MyKeyHero is here to rescue 🔥😅 You can now create digital copies of your keys by simply scanning your keys at any HomeDepot, and storing them on your free KeyHero account. This way, whenever you lose your keys or need to create a spare one, you don't need to go through the hassle of finding a locksmith. To see how the whole process works, I'll be going through and sharing it over here. I just signed up for my account on the app! So the next step is actually going to HomeDepot and getting the keys scanned ✌🏼
Topic of the day: note-taking methods📝
As I post pictures of my Macbook and my notes all the time, people keep asking me about my note-taking methods.☺️
So I did a short research on note-taking methods in general to find out which method I use and which method suits me the best. Tbh I never used a certain note-taking method on purpose. I used them without even knowing that I was using a specific method.😁
First I wanted to share it only in a Insta post but I love doing research and I really like the topic in general…so I decided to write a blog post about it.🤩
This post is a short introduction to my next blog post, where I will cover this topic a bit more deeper.👍🏼
I decided to share the most common methods:
1. Outline/Outlining method: Notes are organized in form of an outline. That means different topics and subtopics are organized by bullet points, dashes or numbers.
2. Cornell method: Notes are structured in two columns and one row below. The right column contains the notes associated with the main topic and the left column contains the keywords/questions/hints associated with the notes on the right. The row below summaries the collected notes.
3. Boxing method: All topics/pieces of information that are related to each other are grouped together in a box. The notes in each box can be organized/structured with another method like the outlining method for example.
4. Charting method: This method consists of a table of rows and columns. The main topic can be found in the top row and the subtopics/keywords/information are organized in the columns below.
5. Mapping method/Mind mapping: The main topic stands in the middle or on top of the paper. Then the main topic is divided into subtopics around/below the main topic. The subtopics are also divided into branches and can be linked with each other depending on their relationship.
6. Sentence method: Each topic is written in a whole sentence on a separate line. A visual aid (like highlight the text with different colors) can be helpful.
My favorites are 1, 5 and 6 (which I obviously use the most)!😉
Which method of note-taking do you use or which do you like the most?
