Keyboard shortcut of the week

My team at work is far from agile, but I’m trying to smuggle some ideas and practices, according to the old Latin proverb gutta cavat lapidem, non vi, sed saepe cadendo.

Recently, as a small way of continuous improvement I suggested each week we print some Visual Studio or ReSharper keyboards shortcut, that we didn’t know or use, and which can help us do some things a little bit faster.

Here’s the first one:


It’s pinned to a cork whiteboard in a location that everyone looks at it few times a day. Hopefully by the end of the week everyone will have it memorized, as we move to another one.

And you? What small things you do to improve your skills (or your team’s)?

Please post next shortcuts on your blog. I will learn with you and your team :-).

I use Alt+R+C (for new class) or Alt+R+I (for new interface). It just uses the ReSharper default menu. You don’t get any cruft and it is easy to remember.

+1 on that. You solved my problem. Now I know what’s gonna be our shortcut for the next week 🙂

Usually what I do however is I _use_ a class or interface somewhere, and then I do alt+Enter -> create class/interface, and then -> move to file that matches that class/interface name. All depends on the workflow though.

I used to do this at my job! It’s a great way to educate people one ctrl-t at a time.
