Sharing tools we use to build software, handle hosting, and edit code gets technical, but answers are just one message away.


FileZilla is a fast, free and open source FTP solution (client and server).

FTP helps us transfer computer files from one device to another; it’s commonly used for transferring large files between a client and a server. We also use FileZilla for data backup or for file sharing.

This is what it looks like:

VMWare Workstation:

VMWare Workstation is a virtualization platform. It enables users to set up one or more virtual machines (VMs) on a single physical machine, and use them simultaneously along with the actual machine. Each virtual machine can execute its own operating system.

This platform is very useful for its broad operating system support (we can test new operating systems), its user experience, a comprehensive feature set (it can simulate disk drives), and high performance, and it was designed for professionals who work on virtual machines.

This is what it looks like:

ReSharper is an add-in (or extension) for Microsoft Visual Studio and it’s a great developer productivity tool.

This tool helps Visual Studio users in many ways, but some of the most important are: analyzing the quality of their code (it issues warnings when there’s a problem in the code and provides quick-fixes to solve them automatically), running checks on browser compatibility, and create live templates.

This is what it looks like:


Atlantis SQL Server Everywhere:

Atlantis SQL Everywhere is a free SQL Server IDE (Integrated Development Environment– source code editors, build automation tools, debuggers) which supports database productivity.

Everywhere is another code editor to handle databases, a helpful tool when handling several data-driven projects at once. It helps us view results, messages and errors from each individual database, or view them all at once, speeding up their development and administration.
