Programmer’s Tools

People look at my resume and exclaim that I have worked at a lot of companies.  This has happened for various reasons.  Recently I began to look at what I actually “brought home” from each company as a new tip of the trade.  Here is the partial list:

  1. Beyond Compare, a fabulous tool for searching in files.
  2. SnagIt by TechSmith: much more than a clipboard buffer!
  3. Notepad++, a free notepad that can’t be beat!
  4. Sublime Text editor: a code editor for someone who does a lot of work.
  5. WinSCP: why not treat your server as just another file system?

This list goes on, I am sure!  I shall try to add to it as I think of more examples of great software I have learned about on-the-job.
