The shortcut to success
Time to share some knowledge!
Using shortcuts when developing is one of the best ways to increase your speed and directly your productivity.
So, let’s start with the beginning. What is a shortcut? A shortcut is a quicker way to do something or to go somewhere. You do the same thing that you used to do but in a more direct way, being more efficient. So basically, you do it faster.
It means that you can follow better the speed of your brain and focus your time on things that you actually can’t (or still don’t know how to) shortcut. This means delivering faster and getting more time to learn and put effort into more important things.
But how would you feel if from now on you couldn’t use Ctrl+C or Ctrl+V anymore? Exactly, let’s try to have more of those from now on.
At isolutions, we use an extension called Resharper. It gives you a bunch of new shortcuts and other features that will help you do the same things you already did but in a more efficient way. I want to mention as well that some of them won’t fit you, so you can always go to your IDE and modify them in order to make them more easy or accessible.
"I'll share with you a list that I always place on my secondary monitor, so I start learning them. Once I learned some of them, I change them for new ones that I want to learn next. This is the only way to learn them, enforcing yourself to use them day after day. Until once you no longer need to remember yourself to use it or to look at the table. (The first 2 have the schema changed as I believe they are useful shortcuts)."
