My WebDev Essentials
January 22, 2007 1 Comment
- SQLyog – if you’re interfacing with MySQL on a regular basis, this is an essential desktop tool. Puts that old phpMyAdmin to shame.
- PuTTY or gnome-terminal – at work I have to use Windows. At home I have to use Linux. gnome-terminal is built into gnome. putty is the way to go from Windows.
- Adobe Photoshop CS2 – we’ve got a few licenses for it at work. For the working poor, give GIMP or Paint.NET a try.
- Google Analytics beats the crap out of pretty much all of the free stats suites out there that run on your server.
- Gaim and Skype are what I use for collaboration. It’s unfortunate we don’t use this at work, but I’m sure that will come in due time…
