Last night’s meeting and presentation with the Capital Flex users group was very informative. After the presentation (and pizza break) we began an informal “round table” discussion about the various FREE and OPEN SOURCE tools web developers use to test, debug, inspect, and manage. I did my best to remember all of the great tools that were mentioned that night.Here are a few:
An open source ActionScript 3 library for client-side PDF generation
Web application testing tool
A tool that captures and displays ALL HTTP traffic
A software stress and load testing tool
An open source content management system
A Firefox extension that displays ColdFusion debug information in a separate tab
A Firefox add-in toolbar containing various web developer tools
It is likely that I may have forgotten to mention one or more of the tools we discussed last night. If you attended this meeting and see that I failed to mention a tool that you use, please feel free to comment. If you did not attend this meeting but you still have a valuable web developer tool that you would like to mention, please feel free to comment. Later I may create a page devoted to listing many of the web developer tools.
Thanks everyone in advance!
