Setting up my development environment

I recently started working on a new project and wanted to organize my workspace to catch up to modern workflows and tools. Below is the list of tools that needed to be setup and configured. I have pretty much everything working, it took a good three days to get it going. I still need to add ios SDK and start pushing things a little bit more.

git/github
puppet
cordova
ionic framework
polymer-project
android-sdk
sublimetext3 or atom.io
git-bash
virtualbox
django
amazon S3
genymotion
angularjs
bower
grunt
yeoman
fabric
