comment Which tips helped you learn touch-typing?
from then on, I would never use the wrong fingers on a key. While not looking at the keyboard is, of course, a sound advice, I've found that what's key to improving is to systematically force myself to use the proper finger, as taught is touch typing courses. This makes it easier to just build the habit as there is a rationale behind it, and if I mess up, more often than not, it's because I've strayed from home row, and try to use the wrong finger, just because it seems it'll be quicker.

comment How to bypass middlemen?
This is actually what we are doing, but the product was poorly designed in the first place (by advertising sales yes-men). So I build knowing there will be some redesign once the customer tries it. Management won't recognize we started off on the wrong foot, pretexting "that's what the customer wants". So I have to stick to the plan until the client says otherwise. That's how it is for now, but I'd like to come to an agreement for future projects. The problem is, I think the middlemen would be wary they may lose their slice of the cake once the customers realize they aren't much help...

Indeed auto-commit would be an heresy ! Regarding yours and Robert's mention of IDEs, I reckon this is actually a rather widespread feature, but this question is tagged text-editors :)

comment Which tips helped you learn touch-typing?
Well actually pressure is the very reason I'm having a hard time touch typing when I'm coding : hitting the wrong keyboard shortcut can end up doing some confusing stuff that gets you out of context, or struggling with syntax when you have clients waiting for a release will lead me to hunt and peck in order to get to the point as fast as possible. I can practice this stuff to some extent when I'm not coding, but exercising two different sets of habits for the same goal messes with my head...
