pHatidic writes: Alex Krupp writes about using a FOSS mind mapping program called FreeMind to become a better programmer. The essay explains how organizing programming language documentation in a mind map can help coders to program above and beyond their actual ability. He gives examples of how using this tool (or one similar) can help programmers to better understand their tools, to think more creatively, and to remember techniques they’ve used previously.
