Most developers I know listen to music while they code. When the meetings are over, the headphones come out.
And devs aren’t alone. According to a study Spotify conducted in 2014, 61% of people listen to music while they work — mostly to stay focused, and to drown out surrounding noise.
So, I decided to code a simple music player with hand-picked tracks.
Choosing the tunes
I made a couple decisions early on:
- There would be no advertisements.
- The genre would be instrumental downtempo music, which is relaxing and non-distracting.
Be sure to bookmark Work Radio and come back. I'll continue to expand and refine the playlist, and add additional features. You can tweet about Work Radio using the #WorkRadio hashtag.
Enjoy the tunes, and happy coding! 🤓
