While executing projects, you need tools. You need to tools to document architectures and designs. Oke, ofcourse you can use a whiteboard and a pen. But these are also tools. Problems can arise while sharing the results of these tools with other project members. You will also need tools to:
- create the sources
- to compile sources
- to create delivarables
You want to have a standard toolset with tools that cover all areas for your project. Some tools will be programming language specific, others not. This page gives an overview of tools you can use as a basis for your gridshore projects. Other pages will discuss the need for the kind of tool. Look at the Continuous Integration page for a discussion about the kind of tools you will need.
