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.

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

MSI P65

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

Lolita Wang

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

Christopher Low

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.
