To master your busy day with all the todos doesn’t have to be difficult. This will guide you through creating the environment you feel the most comfortable with managing all your todos.

What you will need

  • The Visual Studio Code editor
  • One Todo extension
  • Minor tweaks


So, what is the Visual Studio Code editor? This is how it’s defined on the site:

“Visual Studio Code is a streamlined code editor with support for development operations like debugging, task running, and version control. It aims to provide just the tools a developer needs for a quick code-build-debug cycle”…

“Code editor? I am not a developer. How can this help me with my todos”, you might ask yourself right now.

Digital Content

We are producing far too often digital content reactively and repetitively triggered by an event that occurred. The programs used are often specifically selected by the method of distribution or type of media. Due to the volume and frequency, this is most evident in our professional life.

The following every-day activities illustrate this perfectly; writing the minutes in an email directly after a conference call (reactive and often repetitive), writing a functional design document in a specific word processor program intended for the development team (frequently updated and distributed).

Setting The Scene

At home I have two Raspberry Pi 3 installed, one is the combined web- (Apache) and printer server (CUPS) with additionally a database (MariaDB), the LAMP bundle thus.
