My Gears & Tools :-

These are the list of some of the stuffs that I have been using for quite some time.
Some of them do not exist any more (retired) but nevertheless requires a mention.


Adobe Dreamweaver

Adobe Dreamweaver :-

From Macromedia to Adobe, Dreamweaver has remained the number one web designing tool. As years passed by this software has developed in leaps. It’s a designer’s best friend. I use Adobe Dreamweaver for all my Web Designing and Web Development works. I have been using this since 2001.

Adobe Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop :-

Adobe Photoshop, or simply Photoshop, is a graphics editing program developed and published by Adobe Systems. It is the current and primary market leader for commercial bitmap and image manipulation, and is the flagship product of Adobe Systems. It has been described as "an industry standard for graphics professionals" and was one of the early "killer applications" on the PC. I cannot possible live a day without using it.

Adobe Flash

Adobe Flash :-

Adobe Flash (previously called Macromedia Flash) is a multimedia platform originally acquired by Macromedia and currently developed and distributed by Adobe Systems. Since its introduction in 1996, Flash has become a popular method for adding animation and interactivity to web pages; Flash is commonly used to create animation, advertisements, and various web page components, to integrate video into web pages, and more recently, to develop rich Internet applications.

Adobe Illustrator

Adobe Illustrator :-

Adobe Illustrator is a vector-based drawing program developed and marketed by Adobe Systems. The place where I work has all their Product Art Work in this format, so I had to get the hang of this software. Quite similar to Corel in terms of functionality.

..........................................................................................................................................................................................

Corel Draw

Corel Draw :-

CorelDRAW is a vector graphics editor developed and marketed by Corel Corporation. Before learning Photoshop I was only using Corel Draw and Photo Paint for all my visual needs. I am again in the process to regain the regular use of this software.

..........................................................................................................................................................................................

SAP

SAP :-

SAP's ("Systems, Applications and Products in Data Processing") products focus on Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). The company's main product is SAP ERP. As a part of IT Preplanning Process in my present company the whole office has switched to SAP. Fortunately I was a part of the whole selection and development process. My role was like an Analyst, it mainly involved integrating SAP with the New Web Site. I have managed to grasp some of its functionality. Daily using MM, SD and other functionalities.

..........................................................................................................................................................................................

Mysql

MySQL :-

MySQL is a relational database management system (RDBMS) that runs as a server providing multi-user access to a number of databases. Relatively cheap and does the job for a SMB.

..........................................................................................................................................................................................

Pinnacle Studio

Pinnacle Studio :-

Pinnacle Studio is a non-linear video editing software application manufactured by Pinnacle Systems, a division of Avid Technology. All my video projects are exclusively done on Pinnacle. This is a real power packed video editing software. In future I wish to work on Avid Editors also.

..........................................................................................................................................................................................

eJay

eJay :-

eJay is a series of musical arrangement software. It supports eight tracks of audio and, as with its successors, permits the arrangement of sound bites by a drag-and-drop interface. I am using this currently for a dream Techno Album project of mine. Unfortunately it’s taking more time that I initially estimated that it would require to complete all 10 Tracks.

..........................................................................................................................................................................................

Sony Sound Forge

Sony Sound Forge :-

Sony Sound Forge (formerly known as Sonic Foundry Sound Forge) is a digital audio editing suite by Sony Creative Software which is aimed at the professional and semi-professional markets. I still use this for all my audio editing requirement. I have done all the Cd Mastering using Sound Forge. Simple to use with great features.

..........................................................................................................................................................................................

3D Studio Max

3D Studio Max :-

Autodesk 3ds Max, formerly 3D Studio MAX, is a modelling, animation and rendering package. I had to learn this as a part of my curriculum. Unfortunately could not keep up the practice since I moved more towards Web and not toward hard core animation.

..........................................................................................................................................................................................

HTML

HTML :-

HTML, an initialism of HyperText Markup Language, is the predominant markup language for Web pages. It provides a means to describe the structure of text-based information in a document—by denoting certain text as links, headings, paragraphs, lists, and so on—and to supplement that text with interactive forms, embedded images, and other objects. My dear old HTML how can I not talk about you. I strongly believe that Web Developers/Web Designers need to know HTML the very best they can in order to work in any extended platform.

..........................................................................................................................................................................................

AJAX

AJAX :-

Ajax, or AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML), is a group of interrelated web development techniques used to create interactive web applications or rich Internet applications. With Ajax, web applications can retrieve data from the server asynchronously in the background without interfering with the display and behavior of the existing page. The use of Ajax has led to an increase in interactive animation on web pages. Currently where I am working as a Web Developer is using a lot of Ajax in their new web site. I have dig deep in this now to get the upper hand.

..........................................................................................................................................................................................

Struts

Struts :-

Apache Struts is an open-source web application framework for developing Java EE web applications. It uses and extends the Java Servlet API to encourage developers to adopt a model-view-controller (MVC) architecture. My first full time job involved integrating Struts with the front end design/layout. Being my first job it was fun developing new web portals on Struts.

..........................................................................................................................................................................................

ASP

ASP :-

Active Server Pages (ASP), also known as Classic ASP, was Microsoft's first server-side script engine for dynamically-generated web pages. Initially released as an add-on to Internet Information Services (IIS) via the Windows NT 4.0 Option Pack. Initially the place where I work now had their web site developed in ASP so i had to get the hang of it being the only Web Developer for that site.


..........................................................................................................................................................................................

JSP

JSP :-

JavaServer Pages (JSP) is a technology that helps software developers create dynamically generated web pages based on HTML, XML, or other document types. Released in 1999 by Sun Microsystems, JSP is similar to PHP, but it uses the Java programming language. At the moment all my current work are based on JSP.


..........................................................................................................................................................................................

SPRY

SPRY :-

The Spry Framework is an open source Ajax framework developed by Adobe Systems which is used in the construction of Rich Internet Applications. Unlike other pure JavaScript frameworks such as the Dojo Toolkit and Prototype, Spry is geared towards web designers, not web developers. Since I am always using Dreamweaver so I have started developing an interest towards it. Let me see how I can play around with it in the coming days.

..........................................................................................................................................................................................

Finally I have upgraded from Presario C500 Laptop to ASUS E402 MA and ASUS X205 TA, with SSD drive these babies are rocking and very helpful for a quick RAW editing.
