Developer Potluck: Useful tools, APIs, services, and other toys every developer should know about
This talk is designed to quickly introduce developers to a wide range of useful tools and services we have found extremely useful in helping us provide better solutions, improving our development process, and generally just making our lives easier. These tools range from sites that provide useful services for developers, APIs we frequently utilize within our applications to provide more capabilities, SDKs and libraries we commonly leverage, and utilities we find useful. Our goal with this talk is to quickly demonstrate a large number of useful tools, utilities, and APIs and leave attendees with the resources they need to find out more. Some of these tools are free/open source and others are commercial, but we find them all extremely useful and can’t wait to share how we use them. We will discuss: Developer utilities (all the way down to our favorite command prompts) 3rd party APIs Productivity software IDEs and plugins Useful NPM and NuGet packages
- This talk will leave every single attendee with ideas on new tools or libraries they may be able to leverage in their own environments to simplify their lives, streamline their processes, and (most importantly) provide better solutions.
