What is the single most effective thing you did to improve your programming skills?
To be contrary here, I never learned to touch type. I tried learning once, but immediately started getting pain in my wrists, resting them on the desk to assume the proper hand positions was putting pressure on the all-important carpal tunnel. So I figure my pick typing at least has some ergonomic advantages. And I've been doing it for so long, I only glance intermittently at the keyboard, so no real productivity loss. Most of my time is not spent entering chars anyway, it's spent reading code and figuring out how to best solve the problems as they come.
