So in my quest to find a new project to blog about, my brother, Dane, and I stumbled across one. I don’t know of anything that currently exists, but the idea is to have one place to go and download all the different tools used for specific languages. I know for the past couple years, a LOT of developers have complained that they don’t know what, when, or how to use most the tools because they’re coming out too fast and they don’t have time to learn them.
What Dane and I would like to create to solve the problem is a resource for developers to find all tools and tutorials to help them learn. We’ve started writing up some of the user stories using Agile Zen, which is a terrific tool! Here’s what we’ve come up with so far:
We’ll probably start out with only .Net tools and then grow it into some of the other languages. We’re pretty confident that the hardest part will be the categorization of the tools. We’re thinking we’ll have categories and sub-categories, something like this:
I think the categorization is what we’ll have to lean on the community for as well as the tools themselves. Please let me know what you think and whether or not you know of anything in existence of if you think this is a good/bad idea.
Thanks for reading!
