It’s no surprise that we have better retention of skills and knowledge that we take the time to document. I started this blog as a personal record of my academic and professional development. I keep track of articles, programming concepts, software packages, or anything else that makes me a better programmer, biologist, or scientist in general. Perhaps one day this resource may be useful to others. If nothing else, simply taking the time to frequently document things I’m learning will help me better retain the skills I have gained.
