Google Analytics is a great tool to analyze your traffic. To debug our software and ask questions, we love to use Postman and Stack Overflow. Google Drive helps our team to share documents. We're able to build our great products through the APIs by Google Maps, CloudFlare, Stripe, PayPal, Twilio, Let's Encrypt, and TensorFlow.

Git
Visual Studio Code

I use Visual Studio Code because it's fast, reliable and apart from that updated very frequently and very extendable and I like it's Git integration.

Another good reason is the vast popularity which allows for faster community support online (Stack Overflow or else) if you run into App specific issues.

Atom Support might be put on ice in the future (just guessing though, since MS bought GitHub).

Stack Overflow

Let's be honest here guys...the internet, technology, software, and most likely the lights wouldn't be on without Stack Overflow.

We are avid consumers of Q&A on Stack Overflow and other communities on the Stack Exchange network, and definitely wish to extend a heavy thanks to all the help is has provided over several lifetimes of various developers' and engineers' careers. We all try to answer questions, upvote, and comment when we have some knowledge to share, and aren't afraid to ask a question ourselves from time to time (and neither should you!). Stack Overflow

StackOverflow darf natürlich auf dieser Liste nicht fehlen. Die riesige Community konnte uns bereits bei verschiedenen Problemen zur Hand gehen, die wir nicht lösen konnten. Auf viele Fragen findet man hier eine Antwort und ohne StackOverflow, würde dem Entwicklerdarsein wohl etwas fehlen. Stack Overflow
