Some quick notes on introducing a basic programmer's tool kit to new programmers.

The Keyboard

This may sound obvious, but typing is a lot faster than navigating with the mouse. Whenever possible you should be using hotkeys. You will become faster at doing everything on a computer. If you find yourself doing something over and over again, find a way to make it faster. Get in the habit of automating these repetitive tasks.


  • Cmd+tab flips between running programs, in order of last used.
  • Cmd+~ flips between open windows of a running program.
  • Cmd+space opens a search bar for finding anything: app, file, etc.
  • Cmd+, open the preferences/settings of the active program.
