Tools play key role in the development cycles / projects, in terms of improving the productivity (reducing time cycles), reducing prone to manual errors, reducing overall cost of project, etc.
Established organization measure Tool Usage Index for end-to-end development cycles/projects to ensure that all the applicable tools are used in various phases.
Students having exposure to few tools will have edge in technical discussions.
Believe us, it is easy to learn tools if you are under a committed and passionate guide.
Listing few tools here which you can explore.
