Level-Up Your Code-Fu With Chuck Norris (and ReSharper, VsVim and NCrunch)

Our minds possess an unlimited potential and are, without a doubt, the best tool we have in our software development arsenal. However, the interface between our minds and the computer - hands, keyboard, editors... - is imperfect and inefficient, and prevents us from expressing our thoughts in code freely.

But worry not! Chuck Norris is here to kick some ass and help you improve how well and how fast you express yourself in code. Master tools like ReSharper, VsVim and NCrunch and breach the gap between mind and matter.
