There are more differences than what I’ve listed here. There is deep complexity in each of these topics, but this is just meant as a primer.
- Set of development tools that allow you to develop something
- Composed of compilers, libraries, tools, APIs and anything else that’s needed to develop in the target environment
- Usually a set of libraries/tools that you use in conjunction with a framework
- In the web world, an API is usually a set of functions provided to you by a 3rd party application that allows your application to inherit some functionality or data from the 3rd party application.
I’ve been pretty bogged lately with various things, haven’t been able to post as steadily, but here’s a big list of links for reference… =)
It provides efficient MVVM data bindings with a simple and flexible API.’
– ‘A rapid wireframing tool that helps you Work Faster & Smarter. It reproduces the experience of sketching on a whiteboard, but using a computer.’
– ‘VirtualBox is a powerful x86 and AMD64/Intel64 virtualization product for enterprise as well as home use.’ – ‘The only professional solution that is freely available as Open Source Software.’
– ‘Handlebars provides the power necessary to let you build semantic templates effectively with no frustration.’
– ‘Prepros is a web design & developement tool that does all the heavy lifting needed to preprocess, optimize and test your sites and keeps your workflow supercharged.’
– ‘Save your important time tracking data with an industry-leading database engine. Watch your reports shine in a bright, beautiful vector graphic interface. Group, filter, and get statistics in ways you never could before.’ – I am actually thinking of writing a how-to guide to utilizing Grindstone, as I personally would love to use it more. I think a combo of Grindstone and Evernote would be a perfect productivity suite.
– I think everyone has heard of Evernote, but personally I had heard of it, and attempted to use it before… and I couldn’t really get into it. It takes a bit to get into, but I figured ‘learning’ how to use it would benefit me greatly. I think I will do a ‘guide’ of sorts of using Evernote productively, soon.
– A web IDE for Web Development — haven’t personally used, thinking of checking out especially if I start going to use my linux laptop for development more.
So i’ve decided that based upon my ever increasing general busyness of work, life and soon school, i’m turning my ‘daily links’ post into a ‘weekly links’ post. This will give me more time per week, and allow me to post better, more relevant links.
