One part of the answer is the right set of tools, including many not provided
as a part of the language distribution. The old saying "It's a poor carpenter who blames his tools!"
may be true, but having good tools definitely gives a good programmer a head start.
The single most used programmer's tool I own is a code librarian. When I'm
coding, I'm not interested in wasting time by recreating code that I've used
a hundred times before, and that's what my code librarian does for me.
Source code, ready at hand for insertion into my application is the single
best productivity code a programmer can have.
My recommendation for a code librarian is my own freeware code librarian,

and provides one of the largest feature sets of any code librarian available
today. Over 1000 sample source code snippets, including language mini-tutorials,
are included in the distribution.
gbCodeLib includes source code for the
Top 100 Code Snippets. I'm working to
add coverage of the Top 100 Code Snippets to all of the languages included in the
