comment Am I programming too slow?
You could always ask you managers how they think you are doing. That way you'll know, one way or the other. They might have good suggestions on how you could improve. Or they might tell you you're doing brilliantly, and you've got nothing to worry about. Pros: Even if you're doing badly, it shows you're self-aware and proactive. Cons: It might make them realise you're lagging. Alternatively, you might be doing well, and being told that could make you lose your fear, and the desire to prove yourself that fear brings

comment How to improve the code writing effort?
That said, if you want specific examples of what works for someone... Physical stuff: mechanically switched keyboard, natural light, a footrest. IDE stuff: Eclipse and plugins like log4e (log statement generation), Eclemma (unit code test coverage), checkstyle + company formatting template. PC stuff: Freedom to install what I need to get the job done (Cygwin, Notepad++, Winamp, IM), enough memory so my PC doesn't page too much.

comment Which tips helped you learn touch-typing?
It hadn't really occurred to me before now, but touch-typing is definitely an alphanumeric pursuit. The various types of braces needed for coding, along with weird punctuation aren't really catered for by conventional typing tutorials. Doubly so for shortcuts, as they are fairly app-specific.
