Top Tools

The first thing for any aspiring developer is to known about the existence of tools. Today, you don’t have to start anything from scratch. Most platforms have already been built, where you can add-on your code to create applications.

But where do you start? Well, that is where we come in. As a digital promoter of open source technology, we introduce you to top tools that help you develop applications. So here we go.


If you have been in the software domain for a while, you know GIMP. A slightly more advanced and customizable photoshop, GIMP is an open source platform for creative developers. It lets you edit, manipulate and create whole new images, in addition to graphics creation.


Aspiring sound engineer? Well, we give you something even better than Audacity. Ardour is a digital music workstation where you can do pretty much anything to cut, stretch, modify, enhance or quantize audio tracks. Aspiring DJs could give this a shot to see if it helps.


If you are an aspiring App developer, try our NetBeans. As an open source system that supports numerous languages such as Javascript, HTML, C++ and PHP, you can create Apps on Windows, iOS or Android. NetBeans is an award winning platform.


You think C++ is dead? Well, think again. The perceivably ancient and ever-so-famous programming language can be developed within the Ultimate++, or U++, platform. Multiple categories of tools such as audio, visual and text can be developed here.
