You know that pesky feeling when you take over a new project together with a customer’s laptop? Days go by until it starts to feel like home again. The main reason behind that is that you lack all the programming tools which you are used to using in everyday tasks, that make you more productive, faster and generally a better programmer.
Having in mind the importance of using different programming tools, I have created a video lecture to present the tools that I find most useful. You’re most probably already using some of them, but learning some advanced features will make you like them even more. Others will, hopefully, find a place in your toolbox.
Nowadays, when we developers are expected to master more and more technologies, quickly move between projects, teams and domains, it is more important than ever to use the tools which speed up, automate and otherwise facilitate everyday programming tasks. So, if you think that some other great tool should also be mentioned, leave a comment, share your experience and remember that the tools make the IT (wo)man!
