Topic:The Best Web Development Tools for 2014
In December’s session Eric Hill will take us through the latest technology in software tools for web development. As fully expected, there’s so much activity in this area and it’s changing the skillset you need as a web developer. Here are some questions we’re going to tackle:
- Should I be concentrating on PHP, Java or Ruby? (It depends!)
- Why are most developers using Linux or a Mac and is this better than plain old Windows? (If you’re serious about web development, you need to get away from Windows!)
- Am I the only programmer not developing in the cloud these days? (Probably…but we’ll review some free options for you to consider!)
- What is Twitter Bootstrap and why is EVERYONE using it? (Come to December’s session and find out! We’ll also learn about Github, Yeoman, Jade and Laravel!)
If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about web development, it’s important to get started with the right tools. Some of these new tools are so powerful that the productivity gains are amazing. Don’t miss out on the last session of the year!
