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:
- Beyond Compare, a fabulous tool for searching in files.
- SnagIt by TechSmith: much more than a clipboard buffer!
- Notepad++, a free notepad that can’t be beat!
- Sublime Text editor: a code editor for someone who does a lot of work.
- 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.
