How Rosemary Teaches JavaScript – From Awed to Overwhelmed

Could you tell us a bit about yourself?

My name is Rosemary Orchard and I'm a developer by day, and a blogger and podcaster by night!

Is there one situation or project in which mind mapping helped you the most?

It's hard to pick just one, any complicated idea starts out as a mind map for me to let me get to grips with all facets of it. I'm currently working on a course to help people learn JavaScript to use with apps like Drafts and MindNode has been extremely helpful letting me keep track of and organise all my ideas.

How did you get your thoughts out of your head and into a mind map?

I usually start in quick entry mode on iOS. My iPhone is usually the device in my hand so I start listing things there, then I jump into the mind map as the ideas slow down, and add to what I have and rearrange things.

How did it feel to finally see all your thoughts in a mind map?

Depending on the mind map I can feel anything from awed to overwhelmed! In this case I feel rather daunted by the tasks ahead, creating a whole course, but also calmed because I can see where everything is and what I've already completed is marked off.

Once you were done with the mind map, what did you do next?

I shared my mind map with a few friends for feedback before tweaking it. Then I printed it out on A3 paper so I could stick it on my wall! It's colourful and a great reminder of my goal right now.

Where can people find out more about you and your work?
