Are there any general techniques to speed up my coding?

Are there any general techniques to speed up my coding?
This Q&A is part of a biweekly series of posts highlighting common questions encountered by technophiles and answered by users at Stack Exchange, a free, community-powered network of 80+ Q&A sites.

mcwise asks:

I am preparing for a programming contest where we have to code in C++ and it is all about producing working code in a short time. An example would be to use a macro to get the minimum of two ints or using memsets to initialize arrays (but I was told that you shouldn't use either here).

This leads to the question: what kind of coding techniques exist to speed up coding at a real job?
