Software development tools are computer programs used by developers to create, edit, maintain, and debug applications or frameworks. They also include tools to help developers work faster and more efficiently. Using the best tools you are comfortable with on the job is one of the best ways to enjoy working on a project and deliver outstanding results. There are a thousand and one tech tools available to developers, and you can pick and choose which ones you are most comfortable with. We asked the ParallelScore team to share some of their favourite tools, and the majority of them chose the DevOps tools listed below.

VIM (Colemak) 

VIM is a plugin that allows you to customise the keymap for the Colemak semi-QWERTY keyboard layout. The Colemak keyboard layout is a different layout than the QWERTY layout. The Colemak keyboard with the VIM plugin aids programmers in becoming more productive. 

IntelliJ IDEA

IntelliJ IDEA, developed by JetBrains, is a smart Java code tool, as the name implies. It has a smart and deep understanding of whatever a coder wants to type and can accurately predict and complete the code. It is an excellent DevOps tool for increasing productivity and allowing programmers to focus on other tasks. 

GitHub Copilot

Github is an AI assistant that can be added to Neovim, JetBrains, and Visual Studio Code as an extension. GitHub Copilot, unlike other code editors, supports a wide range of languages and frameworks and can easily understand what you’re saying and make the best suggestions for you. In fact, with GitHub, you can simply describe your requirements in a comment, and GitHub will code them for you.


According to a ParallelScore developer, “GitHub Copilot and TabNine are a match made in heaven and make one feel like a stenographer.” Codota owns and maintains TabNine, an AI code completion tool that reduces your workload as a programmer and helps you to code faster. TabNine is fluent in all programming languages. Its primary language, however, is JavaScript.


NextJS is a JavaScript and React-based front-end web development framework. It has several features that help developers with the web development process.


Flutter is a Google open-source framework that simplifies the app development process. It enables developers to perform various tasks and build applications for mobile, web, and desktop from a single codebase while on the go.


Dart is an open-source general-purpose programming language developed by Google. The DevOps tool provides the language and runtimes that Flutter apps rely on.


Strapi is an open-source headless CMS that includes almost everything a developer could want. The term “headless” refers to the fact that it provides data and methods via an API and operates independently of a template engine.


VScode is a reliable code editor for editing, building, and debugging web and cloud applications. It has a built-in extension that includes grammar and a wide range of languages to provide developers with detailed code editing and navigation support.

Apollo GraphQL 

GraphQL is both a query language and an API front-end runtime. GraphQL is supported by the developer’s code and data rather than storage engines. Apollo is one of the GraphQL service providers. They provide the majority of the functions required to build a GraphQL API.
