Pomodoro Technique

Hello Guys, first of all shall explain that I will be using Pomodoro Technique on this project, now what is Pomodoro Technique?

It is a technique created by Francesco Cirillo in the 1980:

The technique uses a timer to break down periods of work into 25-minute intervals called ‘Pomodori’ (from the Italian word for ‘tomatoes’) separated by breaks. Closely related to concepts such as timeboxing and iterative and incremental development used in software design, the method has been adopted in pair programming contexts.The method is based on the idea that frequent breaks can improve mental agility.

There are five basic steps to implementing the technique:

  1. decide on the task to be done
  2. set the pomodoro (timer) to 25 minutes
  3. work on the task until the timer rings; record with an x
  4. take a short break (3-5 minutes)
  5. every four “pomodori” take a longer break (15–30 minutes)

I will be using the software Pomodairo, he does auto-updates from what I’m working on via twitter.

If you want to try this software, it is a freeware and you can download in this link: MAC, Linux or Windows.

Have a lot of others free pomodoro software, but I like this one because of the nice accessibility to twitter and it is very easy to use at all. 🙂

If you want to try some different pomodoro software I recommend too: Pomodoro Time for Mac, Windows and Linux. 🙂

Oh, and if you want to follow me in twitter, i made one for this project just now, follow: @WylNKat
