15 tools and resources every developer should know about in 2022

Tools and resources are a developer's best friend. There are many lists out there already, but maybe the one below might introduce you to a few new ones that you didn't know of yet. Here are 15 tools and resources I think every developer should know about in the year 2022:

1. Flameshot

An open source screenshot tool with tons of features.

2. Design patterns for humans

A detailed guide and explanation on design patterns in software.

3. Insomnia

Great API client and good alternative to Postman.

4. SVGator

Incredible tool for creating animated SVG images.

5. Alfred

Productivity app for macOS users (enhanced search, hotkeys and more).

6. Rectangle

Window mover & resizer for macOS users.

7. iTerm2

Terminal emulator for MacOS users.

8. Fake Filler

Free form filler extension for Chrome.

9. Hoppscotch

An open source API development tool.

10. Notion

Awesome note taking tool with loads of awesome features and integrations.

11. daily.dev

A tool to configure your own feed and discover very interesting articles and blog posts.

12. Gitpod

An open-source application for automated development environments in the cloud.

13. 996.ICU

A movement against the work schedule of 9.00 AM to 9.00 PM, 6 days a week. It’s also the second most starred repository on GitHub.

14. roadmap.sh

A detailed roadmap on how to become a developer (contains multiple roadmaps).

15. Stack Overflow Developer Survey

A yearly report of insights about the attitudes, tools, and environments that are shaping the art and practice of software.

A little afterword

I will be making more lists of tools and resources in the future, so we can consider this small list a part one. In case you want to be notified when I do so, feel free to follow me on DEV or Twitter πŸ™‚

I somehow found roadmap.sh while exploring the internet (with this tab open) before scrolling down and finding it on this list. How is this possible 🀯
