Tools I Like
d3 is great, but when you throw in Crossfilter for some dynamic filtering, I really can't imagine doing data transformations on the client with out it.
I like to say I'm language agnostic. I dabble with Java. I use PHP when making a website on Wordpress, but Ruby is my go-to. Kind of like Michter's Whiskey.
Heroku. Application deployment for mere mortals.
Does anyone actually like configuring their task runner? Grunt gets the job done.
