Eddie is a programmer’s editor for MacOSX and Gnome Linux. Why would you want a programmer’s editor when you’re not a programmer? For me, as I became more and more familiar with the tools discussed in this blog, I found that most of them were even more useful if I learned a little bit about Python, or XML, or CSS, or JavScript, or Lua, or Unix and on and on.
I didn’t need to become an expert, just learn enough to get the job done. Eddie is a great tool for executing what you learn. For example, I used Eddie to do this.
It’s that last sentence that was most important to me.
I know that there are similar programs for Windows, and others for Mac and Linux as well. Please blog about your favorites.
I intend to list free and low-cost training resources for each software package. This will come eventually, but if I wait until everything is complete, I’ll never go live with this blog.
In the meantime, please include your favorite training resources in your comments.
