Tools to Learn

Abstract

As software developers, we stand on the shoulders of giants. Software engineers are both toolmakers and tool consumers. Amazingly, many of these useful tools are freely distributed and free to use. Tools like text editors, version control, and automated tests are used every day in the development and operation of systems. Knowing the syntax of your programming language isn’t enough. You should learn these widely used tools too.
