These are notes to myself. If you discover them and find them useful I would love to hear from you. Most of these are related to travel I did, books I read, or tech notes for Matomo and the LAMP stack.

Memorizing with Anki Flashcards

What is Anki

Anki makes a free studying tool for the desktop. It is a flashcard system for quizzing yourself. You can make a deck of cards or you can obtain pre-made decks online. Their ideal customer might be doctors and medical students but I downloaded it to help me at work, for learning Matomo web analytics.

Anki's revenue model is that there is a paid version for the Android or iOS phone.

Comparead to Quizlet, a similar app, the studying routine is much more powerful. Anki sorts and analyzes your facility with each card. Your performance statistics are easy to review.
