Using Notion As A Web Dev Work Space
Notion is a note-taking and collaboration application with markdown support that also integrates tasks, wikis, and databases.
I recently just discovered Notion. I know… I’m a little late to the party but it seems many people I know have never even heard of it. Since discovering Notion almost a month ago now, I have told everyone and anyone I know about how they can change improve their level of productivity with the tool. For those of you who are actively using Notion, don’t worry this is worth a read for you too. The question is:
Is there a need?
The answer is yes, Notion will most definitely improve your organizational skills but only if you use it right. To start I recommend making some type of home page to keep everything you need in one spot. I would recommend something like this:
Here we have:
- A home page that has two organized columns containing pages (Make sure they have meaning!).
- Under, we have a simple 7-day calendar where I can put important things or goals for the day.
- The Code Blog: A page containing rough drafts of blog posts
- Library: A page containing PDF books I have purchased
- Digital Brand: A page containing pages for each social platform I’m on. This is a good way to keep your social media and accounts “job-ready”.
- Digital Brain: This page has become very important to everyday work, it contains embedded pages for every article, document, and resource I find interesting online.
And now to the most important part of my Notion workspace the “Web Dev Workspace”. The Web Dev Workspace contains lecture notes, personal research notes, important resources to prepare for my future career, and a project board containing pages for each active project.
Here you can create a gallery of individual page sets for each project you have. This way each project you are or have worked on can have it’s own page and sub-pages along with an embedded SCRUM board and tags such as “CURRENT” and “RND” or “DEVELOPMENT”.
In conclusion, I hope to have provided some ideas on how you can organize your own personal development workspace on Notion. Tweet at me or leave a comment on how you use your workspace!
