Onboarding tips (tools, books, ...)
This page is more of a personal “map” for me to take note and revisit tools that I sometimes need to reinstall in new machines I use for work (both at home or in the workplace). It usually helps me quickly setup and prepare for new monster projects when I’m in Tester-Commando mode.
Feel free to have a look! Or also suggest something new.
