Just a coder and a dad. I love my family and I love to code!!!! started coding at 11, so I have 25 years under my belt. Still love learning about it every day. Black lives matter!

So I recently created a website https://gidgitz.com which is a website to help developers with some tools and resources they use daily. I would love to meet a few developers that would like to be part of the project. I want to start off small so we can organize and get a flow going.

I hope to keep it free if possible, as I'm a dad and can't really afford an expensive server fee lol. If you want to contribute (no pay :P) just to be part of it and add your touch to it, then message me!

Thank you!

Have you considered building your tools into an IDE plugin/extension? For example, for VS Code using the Extension API?

A few points:

1) You could say, one goal of a tool-maker is to be "readily available", to minimize the gap between a) wanting to use a tool, and b) actually accessing/using it. By being directly in an IDE, you really minimize that gap (for users of that IDE).

2) VS Code is really well thought-out, I'm impressed.

3) Tools can live everywhere. You can do a website and a plugin/extension, etc. Of course its more time/effort.

I would offer to help but I have negligible free time for the foreseeable future!
