Powerful Command Line Tools For Developers

1 11 2012

Life as a developer can be hard when things start going wrong. The problem could be in any number of places. Is there a problem with the request you’re sending, is the problem with the response, is there a problem with a request in a third party library you’re using, is an external API failing?

Good tools are invaluable in figuring out where problems lie, and can also help to prevent problems from occurring in the first place, or just help you to be more efficient in general. Command line tools are particularly useful because they lend themselves well to automation and scripting, where they can be combined and reused in all sorts of different ways. Here we cover six particularly powerful and versatile tools which can help make your life a little bit easier.

HD-DVD is not dead… yet

7 08 2009

So the other day I was shopping around for a bargain, and stumbled upon an HD-DVD player for $20.  Which is pretty sweet because I can up-convert DVDs to 1080p and also because HD-DVD’s are so cheap right now. So, I bought 20 DVDs on amazon for under $30. Time to fire up the theater and take the surround sound to 11.
