A blog about my life and experiences as a developer.


On this page I list all the tools I'm currently using. I'll try to keep it as updated as possible, as we go. So I have broken down the tools into Software and Hardware and listed any tool I use on my machine or my phone under these categories. I have also provided links for lesser known tools or for more information.
