Tools

Some tools I use

I've been asked at different meetups and events about some of the tools I use. Whether or not this is broadly helpful I figured I would start capturing this here. I think the most important things to keep in mind are:

  • Use the right tool for the job. What are you trying to do? What's the best way to do that.
  • Mastery of a given tool takes time so be careful of switching tools frequently.

With that, I've ran the gamut of editors, shells, etc. and this is what I tend to use for my day to day now.

  • Jetbrains IDE's - Specifically CLion, Pycharm, Datagrip and Rider
  • Jupyter and IPython
  • Powershell cross platform
  • git
  • LLVM
  • gdb
