Anki

Software/System engineering is a vast field. It’s like being a doctor for computers. For example, a doctor can be specialized in heart surgery but the same doctor may not be specialized in brain surgery. But it’s very helpful for doctors to know other parts of human body. After all, a human body is a whole system that work together.

I want to know more about computers but there is so much that I can’t remember everything. That’s part of why I’m doing this blog.

I found this web service that allows you to create flash cards. Anki means “remembering or learning by heart” in Japanese. I’m starting to use it because I want to remember more things. I know repetition is the key to remembering things. I don’t remember the command I used one year ago if I don’t use it.

It has iPhone app (which costs money and I bought it) and Android app that syncs with the data on the web service. It lets you repeat the questions you create on the website and/or on the client application that you sync the data with the web service.

I think this is pretty cool. I hope they will improve the UI a bit more. 🙂
