Tech Tock

Time is of the essence.

New Year’s Resolution App

I’m going to learn all the hotkeys and snippets in Visual Studio and ReSharper.

Towards that end I built an application to email me a new hotkey every day.  Until a better name can be found, I’m calling it OneADay (even though I added a feature so you can make it send email several times a day).  I’ve been using it for a couple weeks now and have added several useful hotkeys to my repertoire effortlessly (I recommend ctl-shift-v).

If you want to join me in my quest you can use it here.  You can put many kinds of data in, so it may solve several different problems where recurring reminders are needed.

It started a few months ago when I noticed a colleague was working quickly with Visual Studio using all the hotkeys.  I lamented that through the umpteen versions of VS (remember VS6?) I have forgotten so many hotkeys and immediately resolved to relearn all the hotkeys in the current version.  I printed out the poster and put it on my desk where it proceeded to collect dust.  Of course I needed an application to help me.  So here it is.
