ToolPond is a site that I started back in 2014. It took just over a month to create using CodeIgniter.

I made this site because as a web developer I often search for tools online. Sometimes I just want to use a tool and be gone, but other times I want to know how a tool works. Maybe I am coding something and need the formula or maybe I just believe in the whole give a man a fish proverb. Anyway, it frustrated me that whenever I would type something into Google like "How to calculate a percentage", I could only find pages that provided me with a tool or formula and not both. Hence why I created ToolPond.

I believe that this site has great potential. It provides everything you need in one place and I didn't even integrate a sign in area - if I did that then that would open up many more possibilities for new and interesting tools. I may return to work on this project further in the future as I have a lot of ideas for where it could go.
