how many monitors best for coding - Page 3

post #21 of 32
of all programmers that i know of, 99% of them use dual screens: one monitor for coding, the other monitor for testing environment. dual screens will definitely boost up your productivity. i agree with Geemaa's post above, dual monitors should be a standard nowadays.

having three monitor is more of a personal choice. triple monitors can be setup as:
1/ coding screen
2/ debugging screen
3/ testing environment screen

I think I win with the greatest number on this thread, but I have 4 monitors and I love it! I use one for my IDE, one for my API, one for my design (usually a UML or something), and one for general help. It's really nice to have screen up where you can google specific questions and problems in addition to the API. I even have 2 mice and 2 keyboards depending on which screen I'm using. On the other hand, I can still code well on my 10.1" netbook. All in all, I love my setup, but practically I think you could work just as efficiently with two monitors.

I used to have 2-24" screens side by side at my old office. I really liked it. Worked great.

Now I have a home office so I split them. I have a C-shaped desk with one on both sides, with separate computers. All work related stuff is done on the "Paid for by employer" computer.

Depends on if you are using a separate compiler to the program that you are writing it in, how many classes etc, but i find that one is enough, but 2 helps more

From personal experience 2. 24"-30" is the best. Plenty of room to code test and debug.

I do web programming, so it's really nice to have my editor and then open a web page I'm working on open on a screen just as quickly back and forth and examine the formulas of these and then looking back to change some code snippet here or there.
