i save all my notes in playground i have a save specifically for noting stuff i have learned. pen and paper work too if you want somthing to guide you whilst your coding or even to plan out how your program will work.

Generally no, but it is a good idea. I Don't personality because I find it a waste of time but that is just how I work.

It is a perk to have as a programmer as during an interview process you gotta be able to write code on paper showing properly indentations ,tags etc . If you know how to do that then no need to practice code on paper

@Michelle I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss pen and paper. While I don't use it because I will just ignore what I had written when I think of something better, it can be helpful for detailing what needs doing. Especially if you are in a meeting and don't have time to write the code in full.

For me depending on the situation and the depth of the problem sketching out things is beneficial.But for simple problems they are not needed. Pen and paper helps me in big matters and rests in small matters. 😃😀
