One of the most frequently asked questions on Nettuts+ is, "What's the best GUI for working with Git?" It's no wonder: Git can be incredibly confusing at first. In today's video quick tip, we'll take a first look at this new app.

    The Internet has allowed us to work anywhere we want, giving us tremendous flexibility in choosing where we'd like to plant ourselves to build the next great app. Not being tied to an office desk has been a blessing to many who cherish the ability to work in varying environments and draw inspiration from their surroundings. But for the most part, we've needed to have a full-blown development machine to make this happen. What if we could leverage the cloud as a development environment itself, freeing us up to choose from a variety of devices to accomplish the same thing. That's what we'll explore in this article.Read More…

    What Are You Using? - Nettuts+ Authors EditionCsaba
    I previously asked several top developers the following four simple questions: What's your primary development focus? What hardware are you using for development? Which editor or IDE do you use? What software can you not live without on a daily basis? The article generated a lot of interest and discussion about the tools the community is using which was really great! We love to motivate discussions with our topics. Well, this also motivated us to ask the question, "Why don't we post about what we, the Nettuts+ authors use every day?" So we did just that. We chose ten Nettuts+ authors and asked them the same four questions. And like before, you'll find the answers they gave below and hopefully discover some tools that could make your development much easier. Read More…
