The best friends of a developer volume 1
The most difficult part for me, since I was a kid was to make new friends. I wasnâ€™t social enough and didnâ€™t speak a lot. This characteristic of me didnâ€™t change by the years, I still remain the same person, polite enough but not talkative. I donâ€™t know if I told this before, but Iâ€™m a web developer and as you know web developers are people who like to live in their own world and they donâ€™t speak too muchâ€¦
This is how it is in real life. In the other world I live, the developerâ€™s microcosm, it is completely different. I have many friends there and we communicate every day. Let me introduce you them and tell me if you would make them friends
YSlow, is another friend which helps everything to work fast, thatâ€™s why it is called YSlow, funny, isnâ€™t it?? Specifically it analyzes the pages you are working on and it suggests ways in order to improve them ... But the last months this friend became a traitor and doesnâ€™t work anymore. Damn you YSlowâ€¦Y??
I donâ€™t want to forget Measure It on. It could be men's worst nightmare...You know what I mean. Ok, itâ€™s not for this purpose here. With this friend you can measure everything and check in pixels the width and height of specific elements on a page. It can make your work easier. Play with it.
Another friend I have and I call it goblin, is Colorzilla. She can always tell the exact color in every point in the browser. The only thing you have to do is to pick with the eyedropper the color you want and write it to your code.
I have many other friends such as Phpstorm, Stackoverflow, internet of course and many others but I am going to talk about them in another post. In addition to friends in real life those ones are always there when I want them, they are loyal, they have the answer for everything, they understand my job and we are going to be friends forever. Thank!
