I like what others have said, and some have said this in part: Go write code. Go solve a problem using a language or technology that will expand you beyond your comfort zone. Go do some code katas. Refactor some existing code.

A big part of the satisfaction of being a developer is watching this machine obey your commands, being in control of technology that is important in many people's lives. Remind yourself of that.

One of the Agile principles is "Working software is the primary measure of progress." We don't measure teams here by how quickly they solve FizzBuzz. We measure them by the code they produce. Remind yourself of that.
