# About this series

Dotfiles are all about boosting your productivity by tailoring the machine’s configurations to your needs. The series is an attempt to share some of the things I learned over time, which I regularly use.

Personalizing a machine takes much time and hard work, and nobody wishes to do it over and over again. There come these tiny invisible dotfiles to save the day. There are tons of great articles out there, and it is easy to get sidetracked from the main goal – maintaining the configurations on a machine with minimal code and almost no effort.

The main goal of this series to create a personalized development experience which requires absolute no maintaince and minimal steps to setup.
