This is probably the most extensive list of best free project management software and collaboration tools, both desktop and web based. We have dug hard to find open source and free solutions, and we found lots of them! Note: listed in no particular order. Compiled in May 2011.
Don't Forget to participate in a contest where you can win the world's biggest UI elements pack "Impressionist User Interface Elements Pack" for 3 winners (1 developer license and 2 personal license) to design your project more creatively. There are many web based code editors out there, but getting by free and good ones is not that easy. That is why I am sharing few robust web based editors that also recognize as IDEs (integrated development environment) to code directly from your browser. Read each entry in the list and see which website suits your needs best.
Project management is a fine art. To support engineer’s activity there are some useful applications which include tracking and reporting, note-taking and scheduling. In our era, it is important having a tool independent of one of our laptop or desktop, so to manage team comfortably and in anyplace we have Internet access. So here is a list of my favourite tools I tested. Currently, I love GanttProject for scheduling my task and defining my milestones.
The cloud computing boom has brought a surge of opportunity to the open source world. Open source developers and users are taking advantage of these opportunities in three key ways. First, many open source applications are now available on a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) basis.
For those that aren’t in the know, the browser based “IDE” is an abbreviation of I ntegrated D evelopment E nvironment. Very simply said, it’s an application that can be used to write code, but usually with added compiler/interpreter, debugging and automation features. Finding a decent freeware code writing application (view previous code-editor compilations for Windows or Mac ), never mind an IDE, can prove difficult. Some operating systems have it harder than others, and if you use more than one, or are on the move a lot, coding can be a bastard. Hence it pays to code in the cloud.
26 Oct 2010 So it's been a month since we released Cloud9 IDE on JsConf.eu and it's been crazy ever since. While working on the project in the past months, the enthusiasm for the project within our team grew. The response we´ve received after our presentation has been overwhelming and has really been a confirmation for us that we´re on the right track. We are happy to announce (as Dion Almaer already gave away ) that Ajax.org’s Cloud9 team and Mozilla’s Skywriter team have decided to collaborate on bringing coding to the Cloud. At JsConf we got acquainted to the Mozilla Skywriter team.
There are tools that make our lives much easier. However, finding those obscure time-savers which would save time in every single project isn’t easy and requires a lot of time. At Smashing Magazine, we are regularly looking for such useful tools, gather them, review them and eventually prepare for a truly smashing round-up.
As we all know, image editing and photo manipulation software is not cheap. On the contrary, Photoshop, the industry standard piece of software is actually incredibly expensive. If you want to be able to manipulate your photos for a fraction of the price, or completely free in many cases, you'll be pleased to hear that there are a number of alternatives available online.
