Today I’ll show you which tools I am using when I develop something. The most of this tools are used by nearly all developer.
The first tool is an IDE, the weapon of every developer. It doesn’t matter which one you use. There are so much IDEs. I prefer Eclipse for normal Java development and Aptana Studio for web development. But it’s your choice. I recommend Eclipse because it’s free, very extensive, in the Eclipse marketplace are many plugins to increase the Eclipse features to a nearly unlimited amount. Aptana is based on the Eclipse layout and has all tools for a successful web project.
The second really important tool is a simple text editor with syntax highlighting, auto complete and a quick and clear interface to edit small files quick and reliable. I am using Sublime text a very stylish editor with a lot of features and a very quick interface. Sometimes I develop whole web projects with Sublime. It’s the fastes text editor I ever used. If you need an alternative or you doesn’t like Sublime you can use Nodepad++ too. I used it bevor and it’s very extensive editor, maybe more extensive then sublime but I love Sublime’s speed and interface.
The third tool is Dropbox to save all my files, so I can’t use it and I can send my files to other people. Dropbox is the easiest way to save all your files in one place and have them on every device. Dropbox isn’t the only cloud but I love it because it has a very beautiful and clean interface. It’s possible to take a look at my files and codes on every device. There are many ways to get more space for free.
The next tool you probably know. It’s Skype. I am using Skype to talk to teammates, to get new ideas and to help other people. If you need help ask me. My name is Devil0s. In the past I used msn but Skype is the better choice.
The fifth tool is GIMP2. It’s Photoshop in free. Sometimes I am using Paint too but only when I want to resize an image or cut something. It’s required to make any kind of graphics.
The last but one is my web browser. I am using Google chrome. I prefer chrome because I love the clean interface and the fast browsing. I have all my bookmarks on all of mine devices. In my opinion chrome is the best browser ever written. Thank you Google.
The last tool is… Minecraft. I think that every developer has a game to play when he is bored. So mine is Minecraft. It’s a beautiful game with a lot of mods and a nearly unlimited world. You can’t get bored. It’s impossible.
