What is your most used tool/resource for developing?

I found this amazing cheat sheet for nearly all web concepts that I have ever encountered. Check it out at this link.

But this page made me wonder, what do other developers use to find out new things about a certain technology or concept?

Nice link. I am going to tell how I sort the "old" things worth keeping, namely I bookmark them and add the proper meta-data (description, tags) with Bookmarks.dev . I have found "new" info recently a lot also on the dev.to community, if you follow the right tags...

As for technologies - it's mostly Java, Python, AWS, Docker, Kubernetes.

As for tools I used in my daily work - IntelliJ IDEA, Vim, Tmux, Kubectl, AWS CLI, Postman, Git.

Thanks for answering! How about learning concepts? Do you use books or a platform to learn new things?

Usually its books, blog posts and technical documentation. As for online platforms - I almost don't use them, seems such approach is not for me :)
Another one nice opportunity you can get something new - conferences, meetups and tech talks (unfortunately now mostly online).

I would suggest using IntelliJ instead of Eclipse. I used Eclipse for some time but IntelliJ is an insanely powerful IDE! And how about your go to platform to learn new things?

Hi! Whenever I have a repetitive task I try to make it a plugin and upload to my plugin repository - sparrowhub.io , so next time I need it it's already here. 😊
