A Journey Inside the Developer Brain

How do you get into the zone while coding? Why does taking a walk or taking a shower seem to help solve problems? Everything we do is regulated by complex processes in the brain, and coding is no exception. Sometimes it can feel difficult to control our minds when coding, but to debug the problem we’ll first need to understand it.

By understanding the physiological processes involved in the work we do, we can be more in touch with our bodies and more productive as a result.
