Software Development Tools Are A Web Developer's Life Saver
You are expected to work, for the rest of your lives, at a company that doesn’t belong to you, as well as make payments on bills, that don't belong to you neither. I mean the bills do belong to you and you are obligated to pay them, but you can find better ways to make these payments.
We could really achieve a greater life for everyone; however, we have to learn, how to use the tools that have been given to us, by our Creator, and take our time to realize that, we are greater than what we believe, we are.
If you don’t realize that you are great, you will go down the path of death, and you will surely die. You will also satisfy those people who purposely, seek to kill you and destroy you, so be sober minded and be aware of your enemy as well.
In today’s article, we are going to talk about the tools which developers, programmers and software engineers, have available to them, to create the great applications, which make the lives of everyone better and convenient. These tools and resources also have the ability to enhance the skills of developers and programmers as well.
The applications, which web developers and software developers are able to bring to us, have to have a purpose in our lives.
If they don’t bring real value to us, we won’t believe that these applications, are worth our time, and we will definitely dismiss them.
The tools, which application programmers and web developers, have available to them, give them the ability to develop state of the art applications, which bring real value to real people.
The tools that web and application developers use, have to be known to the software programmer as well, in order for them to utilize these software and resources very well, and create great and useful web applications and standalone software, fast.
You as a developer, will also be able to develop, these applications and web apps, in the least amount of time possible; due to the fact that you have available to you, many tools and resources that you can freely, utilize.
You have to know what you are doing, with the tools and resources available to you though. You are not going to develop any state of the art stand-along software, and web apps, if you don’t have the skills necessary, to use these tools and resources.
The demand for online applications and standalone software, have definitely grown in the past decade, we are entering an age, which will increase the demand for better and much faster technology. So if you are trying to become a better programmer make sure that, you learn about the tools and resource available to you, which would make your programming skills, great.
The technology, which people will be in need for, in the near future, not only has to be fast, but developers and programmers have to increase their productivity, tremendously and polish their skills greatly, to meet the demands of better technology.
Therefore; as a developer you have your work cut out for you, and you must stay on top of it, so use the tools and resources that are available to you, in order to develop or program, a great creation, in the least amount of time, possible.
The cyber world today, is full of tools and resources, which will definitely make your life much better and easier, if you are real a web site developer or software programmer.
You don't have to develop your own tools, or your own system anymore, if you are trying to create an amazing app, for the rest of the world to use.
If you are still developing your own system or development environment, just to develop a website, or a standalone application; then that means that, you are an amateur software programmer, who refuses to upgrade their skills, and become a better software programmer or web site developer. You are also going to be classified as an outdated programmer, and we all know what happens to outdated things in life. It is imperative that you upgrade your skills and use the tools, available to you, to make a great application.
You will find commercial, and free open source development tools, available to you everywhere online, to make things come together faster and better, when you develop any applications for the web, or just a standalone application.
When you build a website for example, you should already know that, there are tools out there, which would help you manage your content better, these are called content management software/system (CMS) and programming languages.
Not only will you be able to manage your content, but all the initial set up that you have to do, for the back end database and coding is already pre-done for you, all you have to do, is customize the CMS, to fit your needs. My favorite CMS is Drupal, and it is a great CMS, to build or create just about any type of website or software, you may have in mind.
Please know and understand, that if you build your own custom CMS, or try to create a programming language, just to develop a website or create a software, you will be playing with fire, because you could never create a better system, than the current CMS that are available to you for free.
You also have to keep in mind that, most of these tools, were developed by experienced developers and programmers, who knew what they were doing at the time. Also most of these tools, and resources are still being upgraded on a daily basis, which would make your idea obsolete eventually, if you don’t have a team of programmer to help you build your programming tools.
Besides, you couldn't believe, that you can create a tool or resource, which is better than the tools and resources created by thousands of people, who are experienced programmers.
Don't get me wrong though, you could create a better tool, I am not saying you don’t have it in you, but that would be all you create, because creating a tool or resource takes a lot of work; so by the time you are done creating your tool, you will notice that you have spent more time, developing your tool then on the actual applications, you need to create, for other people, so they may find value, in your skills and not just you finding value, in your tools.
Software development is not an easy thing to do, you are required to have the knowledge of many disciplines, and areas of studies, such as mathematics, engineering, computer science and many others.
You don't want to spend too much time on developing an environment to create your software, when that environment has already been created for you.
You want instead to spend your time thinking, about the purpose of your software, and developing that software.
You would also be gaining great development practices, when you use the tools and resources that are available to you, because you have to remember that these tools already have a format of programming, which you must follow in order for you to even be able to use, the tools and resources available to you.
You will find that, it is useful, to utilize all the website technology tools and resources for application development, which are available to you, because of the degree of change that is happening in the technology world.
If you want to be able to stay current, and maintain your programming skills sharp, you may want to make sure that you use these tools and resources, which will allow you to develop, state of the art web applications and standalone software.
If you are a web developer, you have at your disposal, the tools from many browsers, which would help you gain more insight into your apps.
The best browser to develop your web application is Mozilla Firefox, because this company specializes, in helping developers achieve their goals, when developing web applications.
One of the tools, which Firefox makes available to developer, is Firebug, and it can help you debug your website with ease and much better.
Figure out what Firebug is, and what it can do, for your website development skills, you’ll appreciate this tool.
Other web browsers, are competing with Firefox, on this aspect, but Firefox to me, has been the most popular and useful, website debugging tool, we all know today.
As a software developer, you have a Software Development Kit (SDK) available to you as well, which are used to write application programs, which can bring real value to the life of someone else’s life.
SDKs are usually a set of programs, which include a screen builder, a text editor, a linker, and a compiler, for you to develop, state of the art applications.
SDKs allow programmers, to develop software for a specific platforms, since there are many platforms available, and most applications have to be developed for one of them.
Software development kits, tools and resources are programs, which help the developer create and develop many programs and web applications, so it would be a good idea, to use them.
You have to know what you are doing though, don't just think that you will be able to develop a program, using a particular software development tool or resource, and not have to learn how to master, that particular software development tool, which you are using , to develop your applications.
When you use a software development tool and resource, you have to target, security, scalability, intelligence, and time.
If your software development tool or resource, doesn't help you save time, in developing your application, then that means that you need to learn more, about the specific tool or resource that you are using.
One of the things, that these software development tools, should help you do is, to help you develop your application very fast.
In order for you to start developing your application, you have to know the software environment, in which you are working, this is the first thing you need to do, if you want to use these tools and resources, to develop a state of the art application or web application, for a system software for a device.
When you use a development tool, you may be distracted by the complexity of setting it up, on your computer.
You should stay focused though, because setting up the resources or tools that you are using on your computer, to develop your applications for the world to see, is only the beginning of the development of your application and it is the easiest part as well.
Setting up, your application development tools and resources, could be challenging, but you can do it.
You will be challenged throughout the life cycle of the development of your application as well, don't you ever think that things will be simple or easy for you.
Even, if you have a software development kit at your disposal, because you still have to learn to use, that software development kit, and you also have to account for the growing changes, which happen in technology almost every day; which also force many programmers to have to learn new techniques and skills, to keep themselves current.
When you consider using a development tool and resource, you will have to consider the computer that you are using.
The computer that you are using, have to be able to execute the tools you are using, flawlessly or else, you will be frustrated using that particular tool or resources, to develop your application.
The tools available online can take up a lot of memory and space, so make sure that you have a computer that can take the load of the software development tool, which you are using.
Another thing you have to keep in mind is, the operating system, which you will be using to build your tools.
You may want to make sure that, the software development tool and resources, you are using to develop your application, is compatible with your operating system.
When you use a software development tool, you will be brought closer and closer, to your application becoming a reality, because of the simple fact that, many software development tools, will help you avoid all of the unnecessary headache of the set up; which you would have to go through, if you weren't using a software development tool.
Use these tools that are available to you and you only, because most people who are not developers, have a hard time understanding how things work, in the technological world.
Besides, when you use these tools, you become an expert at the art of software and web application development.
It is these tools, which help you become a master programmer, but if you don’t use them, you will always have a hard time, creating your applications.
So if you are that real software or web application developer, you don't have to stand up, as I asked you at the beginning of the conversation, you actually have to sit down and read up a lot of information, on the tools and resources that are available to you, so that you may develop applications that are state of the art and coincide with the technology that we currently have.
Thank you for reading this article!!!

Hi every one, I obtained a bachelor's degree in Bioinformatics back in 2006, from Claflin University, after I received my bachelor's degree, I gained full time employment as a software engineer at a Video Relay Service company, maintaining databases and developing software for a new developed device called the VPAD.
I worked at that company for two years, then I became a web developer, and worked for a magazine for three years. After that job, I worked as a Drupal web developer, as a subcontractor for the NIH, for a year and then left the job to go back to school.
