It's hard for me to list just one because, ehm, I get over-geeky about this
stuff. Coders need an excellent text-editor - and the best one IMHO is
Sublime Text 2 (www.sublimetext.com). Oh, okay, I can't resist - I'm going
to cheat and list a second:
everyone needs to stop writing just CSS and complement it with SASS
(syntactically awesome stylesheets) & Compass - http://sass-lang.com/.
Totally invaluable for any front-end work. It makes CSS fun.

Subject: [CODE4LIB] one tool and/or resource that you recommend to newbie
coders in a library?
Hi all code4lib-bers,
As coders and coding librarians, what is ONE tool and/or resource that you
recommend to newbie coders in a library (and why)? I promise I will create
and circulate the list and make it into a Code4Lib wiki page for collective
Thanks in advance!
