Other than practice/experience, how do you remember or take note of coding techniques that are interesting or useful so you can go back and revise?

Do you keep a word document with the code in it, screenshots, or have a jupyter notebook?

I'm looking for a jupyter notebook type of solution so I can remember all the important concepts..any thoughts?

Techniques of something often exhibits in numerous forms. If you think you have learnt something, you don’t really need to make a note that you learnt. That is what it means by learning. Human memories are not written in permanent inks, we often relate by similarities and patterns. If you really learnt something and not memorise it, then what you have acquired would be the form of the technique. The premise at which you employ the technique, the process of the technique, the deliverables of the technique and also caveats of the technique. That is what I would deem as you understood and you learnt. If like some cases where you simply “return it to teacher” after some years, then you didn’t really learnt it.

For me, I always believe. If you really like something, you don’t learnt it because you need to, but you want to. When you want to, it always stays with you. You think about it. :)

I don’t need to record down what I need, at least i keep bookmarks of sites that I have visited. Even so, what really keep knowledge coming back to me, is searching for new techniques to do the same thing. This way you will learn more forms and you get to consolidate this forms into your own.

I used to take note in a notebook, print them out and file them. Now i take my note in markdown format.

Just use something that you are comfortable to start. Then change to something when you feel there are benefits in changing.

I do think that choosing the right tools and starting right is important, but dun let it cloud your goals and take away what you need to focus on.

Forget means it was not useful in the first place

I think you have photographic memory?! Most people will forget what they learned....

Any example? If you learn Spring boot, then how to remember the concepts without any notes?
Since you quoted Spring Boot, what concepts of Spring boot do you think there is? Let’s list them out :)

I use a very simple approach. I keep code snippets in text file and give it a meaning full name. For example, cwd.js for current working directory for javascipt, JSONparse.js, https.js etc and source url link. As time past, these codes are refined and improved.
