Metrowerks CodeWarrior 8

Metrowerks latest release of its acclaimed CodeWarrior Develop­­ment Tools provides enhance­ments to the C/C++/Java programming environment.

With the new code completion feature, you can write complex pieces of code quickly with fast access to various functions and symbols.

Customisable workspaces and docking windows let you create an environ­ment where you feel most comfortable. A very useful multimedia tutorial explains how to get the best use out of these tools.

A big selling point for CodeWarrior 8 is that users can develop for Windows and Mac platforms using the same development environment. There are also CodeWarrior 8 implementations for Linux, Palm OS, and Motorola platforms.

CodeWarrior’s ability to produce compact and efficient code is thanks to its industry-leading ANSI/ISO/C/C++ compiler. Other impressive features include the customisable text editor, inter­active debugger and sophisticated project manager (See here for a screenshot example).

Students new to programming can benefit from a simplified academic Code­Warrior product that is easier to use, and take advantage of a significantly cheaper price. Check out the Metrowerks site for more information on academic pricing.

CodeWarrior positives include the ability to develop simultaneously for Mac and Windows environments even with only the Windows version, and the handy code completion feature. Drawbacks include the fact that it’s really only suited for ex­peri­enced programmers.

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office continues to make a student’s life that little bit easier by offering reliable, easy to use, time-saving functionality, while continuing to develop new features that further enhance what is already a formidable collection of applications

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
