Free Developer Tools on Windows

It used to be that to develop with Microsoft technologies developers would have to pay up for development tools if they wanted the best experience.  These days with all the options developers have, getting someone to pay for tools can be difficult.

"vim all the way! viemu on Visual Studio! Every time I try a different editor, I always seem to revert back to vim... cygwin is also on my list of must-haves for Windows environments -- that is how I git and ssh in Windows."

On the web seems that games using HTML and JavaScript have started to replace those using older technologies like Flash.  Here is a list of JavaScript libraries that I have seen recommended for creating games. To compile this list I looked at libraries that are free, preferably open…See More

With the rumored end of July release date of Windows 10 here is a look at where Windows 10 is today.  The current build is the most refined one yet, but is still very buggy and hopefully…

Programming for Kids

One thing I noticed in 2014 was an overall push to “learn to code”. Today computers are everywhere and we are only getting more reliant on them every day. It makes sense that more people and kids in particular are being exposed to programming. Here are some resources that I have found very easy to set up if you want to teach your kids about programming. Since I mainly use Windows this will be mainly a Windows centric post.  Also because this is a list of resources for kids I am…

Welcome Douglas! You have an interesting combination of language skills.

The FAQ is a good place to learn about the site. You may want to join some of the interest groups such as .NET and Ruby Developers.

We hope you find TechHui useful and invite others. Happy Holidays!
