Have you ever felt inundated with developer tools? Do you ever feel you're missing something that could make your life easier as a developer and a power user?

There are so many tools available to choose from and it keeps getting tougher to keep up with them. Tool familiarity continues to be one of the top developer challenges. This series of seminars is all about tools for developers, by developers.

    You guys are truly great presenters and I liked the fast pace.

    Jason did a great job showing the themeing and I'm sure the other viewers will agree that Stan's geospacial demo excited us about using this technology with our solutions!
