@lmiq mentioned in the teaching with Julia thread that it might be nice for the Julia webpage to host
How to efficiently develop in Julia tutorial,
for Julia newbies. Well I’ve been using Julia for years and would still enormously benefit from such a tutorial.
I’ve watched Chris’s great videos but always forget what to do.
If anyone is proud of their workflow I’d love a step-by-step list of instructions starting from 0˚K. with some explanation fit for a 5 year old. Like

1.) create a folder for your project. This is where your code will be saved on your computer!
People who understand exactly what
activate . does, would you mind sharing your workflow at that level of hand-holding and individual commands? What works best for you?
P.S. Please don’t just point me to the Pkg manual. I’ve tried but it doesn’t stick. If you tell me what exactly you do, I’ll be able reverse engineer the logic later.
