    Just curious if there are any other web developers out there. If there are, what are your technologies of choice?

    Dreamweaver (awesome html5 and css3 libs), flash, flex to build applications... heck, the whole adobe suite. CS5 is awesome!

    If I have a brain fart and think of a random function, ill either use the app on my phone, or the text editor on my comp to write it down.

    Right now ASP.Net MVC 2 gets me wet (along with .Net 4 in general). Ruby on Rails still does, JSP with Spring almost gets me going as much.

    If it's a simple site, Wordpress is okay, and I'm starting to get into Umbraco a bit (again because of .net 4).

    My favorite editor is Visual Studio 2010. It's overkill for the small stuff (static pages and whatnot), but no other editor / compiler compares.

    If I'm developing in Java, Ruby, PHP or static pages, I'll generally boot into Linux and use use Emacs.

    I usually use PHP to develop my web sites. Most of the time I'm creating a totally new template for WordPress and customizing it to meet the needs of a client. When did it stop being *just* a blogging tool and start becoming something more? That just happened slowly but surely.

    What I like to develop on? I have a MacBook Pro, OSX 10.6, with MySQL installed and PHP enabled (since it's already installed on the Mac OS), so it's my own little MAMP (Mac OS,Apache,MySQL,PHP) stack to develop on, locally. VM Ware Fusion with Windows XP for cross browser testing.

    And I do all my code in TextMate. I can use TextWrangler, but I would usually rather not, since last time I checked they didn't display everything in directories or integrate well with SVN.

    Also. This is such a nerdy topic, and in honour of that, I bring you:

    Oh, oh, how long before the VI guys start trashing emacs?

    I love emacs and I do all my PHP and javascript development using it. The CTO just got approval for a bunch of Zend studio licenses. I'm trying to keep an open mind about making the switch.

    I don't think there are enough linux guys around to have a successful Vi vs Emacs debate. icon_wink.gif
    I like them both. I just like Emacs a little more.

    Development: PHP & MySQL
    Coding: Komodo or Vi
    CMS: Joomla
    Designing: gimp or Fireworks
    Hosting: CentOS 5 with DirectAdmin
    Tracking: Google Analytics
    Debugging: Firebug & TamperData
    SSH: PieTTY (better than putty)
    sFTP: Filezilla

    Other:
    Perl for cron jobs
    Eclipse IDE for Java
    KDevelop for C++
    Webmin for managing non-production servers

    Also - I think Google Chrome is a piece of crap. MSIE seems to do a better job rendering pages, and that's just sad.

    Pyrotech: I've been using ASP.NET 3.5 with Visual Studio 2008 for a while ago, but just upgraded to VS2010 and am getting familiar with ASP.NET MVC 2 sites. Has anyone else made this switch? It's definitely a different way of thinking about web pages (much smarter than ASP.NET webforms) - just wondering how much of a learning curve I'm going to hit here. Seems pretty bad-ass so far though...

    <3 JQuery! I also dabble a little in MooTools which is cool but doesn't seem to bring more to the table than JQuery.

    Its called 'javascriptshell.' It processes/emulates scripts righton the phone... so cool!

    I believe it is on both the android and iTunes marketplace.

    What about VM, there is no 'improving' VM.

    Just ran across VIM (vi improved) on my Unix system. Is it?

    There will be a bit of a learning curve, as you're learning a new way of developing sites. But as far as adding elements to a page or scripting, you'll feel that things are very familiar. You'll also love .Net 4; it's got several neat shortcuts for enhancing security.

    Not sure. On a Unix machine, If it isn't Emacs, I don't consider it an editor. icon_wink.gif

    I am only a hobbyist but here is what I use.

    I use Windows 7 for development and FreeBSD on the server side.

    I have a copy of MS Expression Studio 4 (free from dreamspark.com), it is alright, but I mainly do all my work in vim.

    Haven't really used HTML5 or CSS3 yet, but I plan on learning those soon.

    If I use a javascript framework it is usally jquery, but I often just write my own scripts from scratch.

    I use php for the server side code, and sometimes I write quick desktop tools in php as well using winbinder (php extension to use the winapi)

    I'm not a dedicated web developer, but I've used ASP.NET Web Forms and ASP.NET MVC 3 on a few projects. But I'm mainly a Services and Windows Apps developer.

    PHP & MYSQL for design and apps.

    CMS's I use are Drupal and Wordpress. I've tried them all. Our Agency only uses these two. Drupal can do EVERYTHING, Wordpress is super easy for small sites...


    This is going to blow you away if you have ever had to design a template for a CMS... It is a WYSIWYG that creates PERFECTLY coded themes for a variety of content management systems. Has cut our agencies theme development time down by 90%. The code it generates is so good its easy to manipulate to add extra customization as well, and once you learn it well, you can do some really nice stuff with it.
    Web Design Generator - Artisteershow?id=UhQ7iBY4y3k&bids=173675.10000001

    It feels like cheating... Before we'd either have to start from a "framework" theme and spend several hours manually building everything out. Now the design phase and coding phase are integrated into one point and click solution.

    Less time doing the coding / graphic work.. More time creating content and selling!!!
