In November, we had another lightning talk event at .NET Oxford, where I did a talk on Developer Productivity. I summarised the talk, in my blog post about the night, but promised that I'd do a full blog post about my talk - so here it is!
To-do lists are something I use very heavily. Without them, I wouldn't be able to do a fraction of what I currently manage to get done.
One of my recent blog posts - "Git GUIs versus the CLI", discussed why I think that a GUI is far better suited for source control than the CLI. However ... being a big command line fan (albeit, perhaps not always for source control!), the last thing I wanted was to come across as anti-CLI! Far from it! So I thought a post about the CLI, together with a few tips to help you get the most out of it was in order!
This is my second LINQPad Tips and Tricks post. If you haven't read my first post, I'd definitely recommended reading that one first, and then coming back to this one ...

So, I've written a few posts in the past about storing code snippets and my various attempts at finding the right tool for the job. I've tried plain text, TWiki, and Evernote in the past. However, I've now finally(?) settled on Workflowy for both this as well as many other things. I really think I've found the sweet spot here for code snippets.
Last night whilst was watching a PluralSight video by Shawn Wildermuth, one of the chapters mentioned a plugin called Zen Coding. I've heard about this in the past, but had forgotten about it until now - which was a mistake!
