There is no ideal speed. As long as you can type, it is fine. That being said, I understand that you want to increase your typing speed in order to code faster. Well that's up to you. See how you can maintain a typing speed fast enough while still being able to think.

Pretty decent. But like I said, typing speed is of no use if you can't code properly.

Aphran (Storm Me) I did not say that faster typing is useless. Just that quality of ideas are more important than typing speed. And don't plug your codes like that.

Hey Sultan I am totally agree with 👑 Prometheus 🇸🇬 because the answer is appropriate... Just I can tell you how to increase speed.... 1. Do not rush when you just started learning. 𝙨𝙥𝙚𝙚𝙙 up only when your fingers hit the right keys out of habit. 2. Take your time when 𝙩𝙮𝙥𝙞𝙣𝙜 to avoid mistakes. The speed will pick up as you progress. 3 Always scan the text a word or two in advance.

Speed doesn't matter, programming is 95% thinking and 5% writing, but you should be able to touch type, without looking at the keyboard. You can probably already do it even if you think you can't, it doesn't take too much practice.

About 1000 wpm would be awesome though.

What is the best typing speed? I don't know. I'd like to ask you another question. What's your error finding and correction speed? In my opinion this the real coding speed 😂 In my opinion it can be terribly slow and your code won't work until you find all typos. I still miss $ signs in my PHP codes sometimes and it slows me down.

👑 Prometheus 🇸🇬 thanks for sharing. My typing speed is only 20 wpm. Is it sufficient

My typing speed varies on my emotional status at that moment

Sonic 1000 wpm !!! Gotta go fast

You'll become faster the more you get used to your keyboard. When coding, the speed doesn't really matter that much since you'll mostly be typing in bursts anyway. You'll probably spend more time thinking than typing. ya..

Download typing master pro in your device it is good for beginner and advance .

Aphran (Storm Me) thanks bro

Yes prom you are right but both of them are useful

try it from "keybr.com"

Since you are thinking as a developer 20wpm is a good speed to go unless you are a hacker then 100wpm will work for you.

Developers are not stenographers so the typing speed does not matter much, but I still think that 1000 wpm would be awesome.

Work at your own pace?

My typing speed is about average (40 wpm) and I can code fine. As some other people said, learn to touch type. It is very helpful.

70WpM is perfect
