comment General programming techniques to speed up coding time
@Konamiman: heh, yes I am. I couldn't tell if he meant "I am preparing, in C++, for a programming contest" or "I am preparing for a C++ programming contest". Oh well, chips lie where they may. Still, nothing beats a very fast RAD environment for programming competitions, where literally every second counts.

comment If your algorithm is correct, does it matter how long it took you to write it?
Starting your IDE and creating a blank project takes five minutes? If you don't already know Towers Of Hanoi, at least do them in the opposite order so the IDE is loading (from a VM over the internet apparently) while you're researching!

That, or figure out how to call their library from an open-source "shim" in your application. This is done often with a little RPC module.

comment Improving the speed of writing code in C#
This is all around pretty terrible advice. "Don't test business problems" -- those are exactly the ones you want to test. They're easy and important. "Keep tests out of the dev loop" -- CI is a final gatekeeper for broken code. Why check it in broken? "Use public fields instead of properties" -- until you need a property and all things compiled against your library need recompilation. That's what auto properties are for.

@Raynos: +1 for the honesty of "I'm a bad developer" that nobody else wants to accept. Too many people are thin-skinned these days...

comment C#/.Net/Programming talk
LINQ is a general purpose query tool. LINQ-to-SQL, LINQ-to-Entities are database access tools. LINQ-to-objects is perfectly cromulent to use in the frontend.
