  • Ryver, the free team communication tool.

@at15: An alternative for Slack.


@at15: Might inspire u with new project ideas for new comers (if any). - Mega Project List, a list of practical projects that anyone can solve in any programming language.

@arrowrowe: Seems kind of old-fashioned and easy to get startted... - Static Site Generators, the definitive listing of Static Site Generators — all 445 of them!

@at15: @ComMouse So why this site itself is so... ancient...

@ComMouse: @at15 It uses DocPad.

Great Works

@at15: This demo can recognize hand writing and give latex code! - Contentful, like a CMS... without the bad bits.

Contentful is a content management developer platform with an API at its core.

  • API-first, not browser-first.
  • Scalable cloud, not on-premises setup.
  • Content-centric, not page-centric.
  • Just the content, no presets or templates.
  • SwarmKit (by Docker), a toolkit for orchestrating distributed systems at any scale.

Includes primitives for node discovery, raft-based consensus, task scheduling and more. - CockroachDB, a scalable, survivable, strongly-consistent SQL database.

CockroachDB is a distributed SQL database built on a transactional and strongly-consistent key-value store.

It - scales horizontally; - survives disk, machine, rack, and even datacenter failures with minimal latency disruption and no manual intervention; - supports strongly-consistent ACID transactions; - and provides a familiar SQL API for structuring, manipulating, and querying data.

  • The Recurse Center, a free, self-directed, educational retreat for people who want to get better at programming.

...whether they've been coding for three decades or three months.
