On the other hand, Eclipse platform and Java are my favorite too. If not daily, once in a while I find times to do something there, though my regular work has got nothing to do with Java.
And I have been thinking what makes me get hooked onto these sites or applications? These points are helpful while we design and create any application in general ?
Here are few reasons (I haven't segregated the reasons for each of these)
- Superb UI
- Easy to use
- Very good user manual/help available
- There is always something new every day !
- Allows me to learn new things
- Gives me sense of achievement
- Incremental - I don't need to do everything at one shot.. but still I can do at some point in time
- I can find people who could help me with my queries
- I can get connected to people with similar interests
Do you have some favorite sites or application that you use regularly ? If so why ?
