What are the different tools to develop and deploy changes in Salesforce?

1) Using Apex in the Developer Console: integrated development environment with a collection of tools you can use to create, debug, and test applications in your Salesforce organization.

2) Using the IDE: Using this tool, you can also compile and test the code you write, synchronize changes in a sandboxt, and deploy your code to a production organization

3) Using SOAP API: develop and deploy changes to a development or sandbox organization, programmatically.

4) Using Migration Tool: file-based deployment of metadata changes and Apex classes from a Developer Edition or sandbox organization to a production organization using Apache's Ant build tool.

5) Using Change Sets: deploy workflows, rules, Apex classes and triggers, and other customization from a sandbox organization to your production organization. You can create an outbound change set in the Salesforce user interface and add the components that you would like to upload and deploy to the target organization.
