I chanced upon this yesterday (http://sourceforge.net/adobe/cairngorm/home/) and was impressed with what they are trying to do. Building upon Parsley looking to do a lot of injection and also support modules that they have been criticized for in the past. Looks like Adobe Cairngorm team finally got it right. Advertisements
To kick it off, I have attached the tools that I am going to use in the development environment. This is not an exhaustive list, and I may add more things to it as I go about development.

Not even once did anyone asked, how can we ensure that we do not have so many defects in the application. Now even once did anyone asked if we already have Unit testing how come we still have these many number of defects.
Today after a while I decided to get back to development and started to setup my Laptop with variety of development tools and my fetch my projects from hard drives. As I sit down to get started once again, I am thinking of what all should I get to get back to development. Also, this…
