  2. TMUX - WHAT DOES IT DO? It lets you switch

    easily between several programs in one terminal, detach them (they keep running in the background) and reattach them to a different terminal. And do a lot more.
  3. WHAT I USE IT FOR? Connecting to lots of servers

    Keeps work & 'play' separate Developing Faster feedback loop (recent)
  4. CONNECTING TO LOTS OF SERVERS If you have to connect

    to lots of servers or even worse lots of 'tin' then tmux helps you out.
  5. KEEP WORK & 'PLAY' SEPARATE I am easily distracted. I

    work in full screen mode. Mostly inside the terminal (depending on my mood).
  6. DEVELOPING I have found tmux so useful it helps me:

    Keep track of my work Helps me set up projects (with helper scripts). Projects are kept in their own eco system
  7. FASTER FEEDBACK LOOP A recent addition to my tmux enviros...
