Brandon Savage's Blog:
The Five Tools I Can't Develop Without
February 08, 2011 @ 12:52:40

Brandon Savage has a new post to his blog today with a list of five tools he can't live without in his day-to-day development work. These range from the physical hardware under his fingertips down to software that helps get the job done.

Every developer has a toolkit of favorite tools and applications that help them develop more effectively. Being individuals, developers often differ (and in some cases, argue) about the tools they use. One of the most frequent questions I'm asked is "what are the tools you use?" and that was the genesis of this blog post. While there are many tools that I would feel lost without, I have listed the five that I see as most crucial to my ability to effectively develop software.

His list includes the physical - a fast machine with dual monitors - and less physical - bug tracking software, an IDE he feels comfortable with and a few Firefox plugins to make debugging simpler. There's a few comments on the post from other developers sharing their "must haves" in their development too.
