What is this?
Every now and then, I find something interesting that I want to share.
Web and Application Development
- Sublime Text -- This has been my go-to code editor for the past 10yrs. I am sticking with v3 for a little while.
- Navicat -- This has been my go-to database client for the past few years. It's just kind of expensive
- TablePlus -- Great budget alternative to Navicat
- Docker -- Good alternative to Vagrant or Valet
- Postman -- API client that is pretty good when building out your back-end
- MacDown -- My go-to markdown editor
- Duet -- How I use my iPad as a second monitor for work (Yes, I know that Sidecar exists)
- Macbook Pro -- It is what I use for both my job and my side work
- Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Mouse -- Ergonomics is super important in this field
- Saucelabs -- Allows you to test against a lot of browsers / operating systems through your browser
- Render -- How I host a lot of my stuff
- Mailtrap -- Great for testing how emails go out, in your development environment
- Github -- I know that a lot of people like Gitlab but there are more people on Github
- Cloudflare -- A freemium reverse proxy service that does a lot to protect your websites
- IFTTT -- Good for connecting services like twitter, RSS feeds, wordpress, etc together
- Jetpack -- Running wordpress? You would be stupid to not use this.
- That Conference
- Milwaukee Code Camp
- Laracasts -- A great resource if you are a lavavel developer
- Oh Shit, Git!?!
- Hacker News -- Good for figuring out what's happening in the industry
- Font Awesome -- Get the pro service. It is worth it.
- Avataaars Generator -- A web tool to generate avatars
- 700+ Open-source CSS Icons
- Duet -- I use this daily during quarantine from home
- Yorkshire Red -- I think that I prefer it over Yorkshire Gold
Random Useful Projects
- CORS Anywhere -- It acts as a reverse proxy and adds CORS headers to the proxied request
- Pinebook Pro -- I have the non-pro version of this
- Pinephone -- I've been super tempted by this thing.
- Google Fi -- It's great because you can get 10 free data sims
- ITProTV -- I bought a year of this buring a black friday sale, a while back. It's nice.
- Bivvy (Pet Insurance) -- It costs $10/pet/month and is seriously a game-changer.
- Scott's Cheap Flights -- Tell them where you want to travel from and to and they will shoot you an email when there is a cheap price on airfare
- FareDrop -- Very similar to Scott's, above
- Skyscanner -- Skyscanner is a search engine for airfare instead of a notification service. It lets you browse destinations and dates to find the best price.
- Momondo -- Very similar to Skyscanner
