Online typing practice for programmers

Searching for the keys on the keyboard at the time of coding is disturbing and might be a hindrance to a smooth thinking process. As a programmer, you should do number typing practice and symbol typing practice a lot. And as mentioned earlier that by doing it online you can track your progress automatically.
Online typing practice for kids and adults
Learning to type correctly is important for the kids because it will save them time for the rest of their life. Kids should start with the correct finger placement. Placing the fingers in the correct position on the keyboard and typing without looking at the keyboard is a prerequisite to becoming an expert at touch typing.
Adults who already know some typing but can not do touch typing might experience a sudden drop in their typing speed after they start touch-typing practice regardless of online or offline. But you should not worry about it because your brain is taking time to unlearn the wrong habits first. Immediately after you unlearn the wrong habits, you will exceed your lifetime best typing speed if you continue practicing touch typing regularly.
Online typing practice for 1 minute or based on the length of a paragraph
Setting the correct duration of your online typing sessions is important. If you decided to keep practicing all day until you become an expert, you are doing it wrong. Or if you decided to learn touch typing but do not practice it regularly is also not right. Ideally, you should be practicing around 30 minutes or so every day if possible. But do not stress about it. You should listen to your body in this process. Stop typing if you are feeling uncomfortable.
