Development Tools Mash Up

UPDATE: I've moved this list over to my web site. Go there to see the updated list.

This is my growing list of tools that I'm using or have used in the past. Hopefully, you'll enjoy the list and check one or two of them out.

Windows 7 Utilities
Microsoft Web Developer
  • MetaEdit 2.2 --- Allows you to view and edit IIS metabase 3.0, 4.0, and (not supported) 5.0/6.0.
UML Tools
  • TopCoder UML Tool --- An UML Tool that's pretty and free. I love using it to think through the architectural design of an application.
Programmer Fonts

  • Proggy Clean -- Compact programmer font; I appreciate its presentation and have used it a lot in the past.
  • Consolas -- Microsoft font; I'm currently using this one to constrast against Proggy Clean.

Source Control
  • VisualSVN Server --- SubVersion Server provides an easy way to create and maintain SubVersion repositories. I'm using it at home and love it.
  • TortioseSVN --- A SubVersion client; most notably known for its Windows Explorer integration. It's the best SubVersion client I've used to date. (I've tried a handful.)

Here's a short list of other developers who have lists of their favorite development tools:
