What is something I can do to keep myself organize with all my work from my computer science in the future?

How should organize my stuff so I can easily find what I need.

Thank you comment icon I would say maybe get a file cabinet so maybe you can organize important paper work you need, another thing I would suggest would maybe put important documents in a file on your computer. Hope this helped. Rich

M’s Answer

Hi David! This is a great question! With everything online these days, it can be difficult to stay organized. However, once you have a system I find that it is a game-changer. First of all, have folders for each of your classes, then depending on how your course is broken down, whether it is by week, by project, by chapter, create those additional folders accordingly. Then add assignments to each folder, and knowing that you are in computer science, save your code as a new file everyday that you edit it. I would make this note by added the day's date to the end of the file. Because I've taken a few coding classes, and I have messed up and wanted to start over but had already made changes, so this is an important step. Additionally have an archive folder and add any of the older dated files to this folder. So essentially one example of a folder would go Class > Week 1 > Assignment 3 > Exampleproject_4.8.2022.json. For example a file in the archive folder may look like the following Class > Week 1 > Assignment 3 > Archive > Exampleproject_4.6.2022.json.

Hope this made sense and helps! Good luck David!

Create a list of things that are priority. Complete it by the list and do not procrastinate. Start using your calendar to block your focus time. Be realistic with your list.

David,

In addition to the answer above, once to have all your project organized locally consider creating a github account and keeping any major assignment/projects that you worked on there. Most companies use git based repositories and having that knowledge would be beneficial. Also, if you ever wanted to showoff your work you could easily do that.
