It’s not enough to be just another developer in today’s tech age. You need to haveskills that make people fight to get your services. The more skills you have, the greater are your chances of acquiring better projects. If you are a developer who wants to be a sought-after name in the industry, we have compiled a list of tools that can greatly help you.


As they say;

Whatever the school of thought you subscribe to, there is absolutely no doubt that you’ve got to get your Java coding right.

You can’t become a developer without having command over JavaScript. The reason behind its popularity is simple- most sites in the world run on JavaScript. It is light and  responsive. If Java is not working for you, JavaScript will always come to the rescue and ease things out. It is the language of developers on the interwebs.

If you are a JavaScript developer, be prepared to earn around $400-$500 every day. And,JavaScript’s popularity is here to stay.


PHP is the best competitor to JavaScript. It is very easy to learn, very smooth to apply; and beginners can start off with PHP at the start of their professional journey. On the other hand, experienced coders and developers don’t prefer this tool they believe it has lots of poor and flawed features.Despite this, PHP’s popularity has been increasing every day.

Because it has been around for a long time, hundreds of tutorials and videos are available online that describe the process of using and implementing PHP in projects. The next generation of coders and developers will definitely benefit from this treasure trove of information.

Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a universal tool that can be of immense use to every business and individual in the world. The success of business lies in conversion, and conversion depends on traffic. If you are succeeding in attracting traffic to your site, you must also be able to track this traffic for higher conversion rates. Google Analytics is the tool to track and measure the flow of visitors and automation testing.

The standard version of Google Analytics is free and it provides deep insights. If you are a developer who deals with data, you must have Google Analytics installed and running. It effectively helps you track and segment your audience into demographics, devices, and other details down to each hour/ second on your website. This is truly a tool that can make or break your business.


If you don’t know about GitHub, are you even a developer? This is one of the most popular tools in the industry right now. It is a big deal in the open source ecosystem, replacing the infamous SourceForge and becoming the most-visited place for open source projects and code. Creators of GitHub have created a community of developers who can grow in their profession. GitHub is the dream of every developer who aspires to control both online and offline parts of his game.


You can’t be a developer in this era if you don’t know about HTML5. HTML5 is a cool language which enables developers to create apps that are not limited to a single operating system or device. A general approach supported and heavily practiced today is using a standard set of static properties for each element depending on its HTML type. 

You can use this language in any sector, be it banking, ecommerce, or education. The popular video website YouTube has also introduced HMTL5 as an opt-in to try. All the major browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc.) support this language and its popularity is going to escalate in the future. It is a handy tool for the developer of today.

Chrome Dev Tools

Chrome has been actively investing in a lot of developer tools ever since it was launched. Whenever a Chrome update is announced, the fully-updated set of developer tools is also announced along with it. These tools are very diverse in their usage.

Here are some of the tools in the Chrome Dev suite:

  • DOM (HTML) editor in real-time, so you can update your team as you make the changes
  • JavaScript debugging
  • Performance analysis tools on a deep level
  • The website and Google Developers YouTube channel, which contains rich information about development tricks and is updated on a regular basis
  • HTML 5 rocks, which contains a lot of useful tutorials for developers
  • Network tools which update you about loading flows, as well as a timeline which shows the functions of the browser

If they continue to update the set of tools like this, Chrome Dev tools are going to become a goldmine of resources stacked on a browser.


Python is already a very famous language in the developer world. This programming language is quite likethe English language. It is also one of the easiest development languages to learn. Every top computer science school uses this language to teach students to code. This is one of the biggest reasons behindPython’s popularity. Since C++ is ranked just above Python, as a developer you can expect to earn high salaries in both these languages. You must be wellaware of this language if you want to create software that sticks around for longer.

Eclipse IDE

If you are a developer looking for a Java Integrated Development Environment (IDE), all experienced developers will point you towards Eclipse IDE. This is a personal favorite of many developers out there. Eclipse is a very powerful tool that assists you with code completion, syntax, and refactoring. It also offers the Java Development Tools Project (JDT) which includes a wide range of plugins for when developers need any kind of help with Java apps.

Powershelland Bash

Most of the modern tools introduced for developers are handy, but it seems like something starts lagging sooner or later. Quite often, you realize that this tool isn’t what you needed. In such cases, you must prepare yourself to write basic script for restart, get an error code from an exit command, or send a few commands on loop.

This is what Bash and Microsoft Powershell enable users to do. It works on Linux, most of the Unix devices, MacOS, and Windows 10. You can combine this with the power of Grep- a Select-String of Powershell to have a stronger impact.
