A programming tool or software development tool is a computer program that software developers use to create, debug, maintain, or otherwise support other programs and applications. The term usually refers to relatively simple programs, that can be combined together to accomplish a task, much as one might use multiple hand tools to fix a physical object. The ability to use a variety of tools productively is one hallmark of a skilled software engineer.

  • Dreamweaver
  • Dare2web
  • Windows Movie Maker

Dare2web website builder is a very easy to use and affordable tool for creating websites. It is an excellent platform to create websites without knowing the inner workings of HTML.

Windows movie maker is a video editing development tool that allows users to crop video, audio, and even pictures together in to one.


A collaboration tool is something that helps people collaborate. The term is often used to mean collaborative software, but collaboration tools were being used before computers existed. A piece of paper, for example, can be used as collaboration tool.

  • Microsoft Lync
  • GTalk

Skype is a great collaboration tool for team projects because it offers voice and video calling between computers.
