There’s a lot of work going on at Startup Weekend, and work requires tools. We often make reccomendations to participants about what tools to use. So, we thought that we should ask our Coaches and Judges what tools they use every day.
My SG3, my iPad and my work-issued Dell all sync Google Chrome and Dropbox!
Has a handy post that outlines everything.
Assembla.com, podio.com, dropbox, box, google drive, echosign, Freshdesk, clockspot.com, hootsuite, WordPress, google hangouts, Cord (rdp), cyberduck
Apple Mail, BBEdit, Safari, Chrome, Bash, Excel, SSH, and Jamaican Blue Coffee
- After Effects
- Hip Chat
Sublime Text for coding
Git for version control
Linode for hosting…if it’s a newer project, I’ll use Heroku to get it up and running quickly
S3 for image hosting, Cloudfront for CDN
I work with a remote team so we use a combination of HipChat (with a Hubot bot) and Google+ Hangouts to keep in touch. Also a little Trello.
Stripe for credit card processing
For the application itself, NodeJS, BackboneJS, Ruby (I prefer Sinatra or Padrino over Rails, personally) for the backend, Postgres…
That’s about it…nothing ground breaking there, but about all a web startup needs, I guess
