The top ten new development tools for June 2017 are:
1. osquery – OS SQL Query Tool
At number #1 is osquery – a new tool from Facebook which exposes your Windows, macOS or Linux operating system as a relational database. You can use SQL queries to examine running processes, view installed software, discover hardware events and more.
The following example returns a list of attached USB hardware devices:
select * from usb_devices;
It’s an unusual idea. It could be used by web developers to monitor performance or security breaches regardless of where an application is hosted or their experience of that platform.

2. Standup – Progress Reporting Service
Standup processes your project data from services including GitHub, Bitbucket, GitLab, Jira and Trello to create development team progress reports in a single view. The online service is free to use, easy to understand, and could streamline your daily stand-up meetings.
