One thing I always find myself doing is showing people the little indisposable tools in my toolbox. Here's a list of some I couldn't live without.
Of course it goes without saying that Visual Studio is the tool that I use most. But there are a bunch of things in Visual Studio that take beginners some time to figure out. If you don't know what these are, go figure them out now!!
These are just a few things I use to get my job done. If you don't know what any of these tools or VS features are, I encourage you to try them out.
