Toolbox for open source developers

It is the era of SaaS and its byproduct freemium licensing model. Simply saying, so many tools and services are there for free to help software engineering. There are a lot of lists published which aggregates these free tools and services for software development. This is my version of the same which index all the software tools and services which I know, use and recommend.

There is a thought process going on about moving this to GitHub where it is easy to manage. No plans to merge with other public lists as one of the aim is to index what I used, not all those are out in the wild internet. Let google do it.
