Three PhD students at MIT have put together a set of resources and lectures covering ancillary, but still important, topics that aren’t always covered in formal CS education, mostly around using and organizing your tools, version control, debugging, etc.

Favorite tweet:

excellent course on how to use a computer effectively https://t.co/y2CNhhjqpR covering the shell, git, debugging, vim. all the stuff that coders usually learn from each other instead of from a book or in a classroom. the videos are good & transcripts are awesome.

We’ll teach you how to master the command-line, use a powerful text editor, use fancy features of version control systems, and much more!

We’ll teach you how to master the command-line, use a powerful text editor, use fancy features of version control systems, and much more! Students spend hundreds of hours using these tools over the course of their education (and thousands over their career), so it makes sense to make the experience as fluid and frictionless as possible. Mastering these tools not only enables you to spend less time on figuring out how to bend your tools to your will, but it also lets you solve problems that would previously seem impossibly complex.
