  • Website Planet’s Favicon Generator I’ve mentioned a favicon generator before, but this one comes from a reader. Not only does it support a larger filesize (up to 5mb), it also provides a gallery feature, so you don’t have to bring your own image; you can simply choose from a wide variety their gallery provides.

  • Heroku: Simple to host on, and I don’t have to worry about managing everything.
  • for a good sequence diagrams app.
  • Jesse Storimer has authored 3 books, of which I am in the process of studying. Wonderful stuff for those interested in learning more about computers and how Ruby works with it.

  • Upcase: A wonderful online finishing school. Their tagline is, “Let’s get that junior out of your title”. Well worth the $30 a month - your employer may even cover it, just ask! Link includes 50% off your first month
  • Exercises for Programmers: Working through this as part of a dev book club, and the exercises can seem very simple. However, a slight change of approach and you can end up spending 8 hours building a game for one of them, like I did.
  • Supergirl Pilot Episode: A delightful introduction to a female superhero that is current, quirky, and just plain delightful. It’s rare that I watch much television, so it’s nice to be surprised by the care and quality in the first episode.

  • CodeNewbie: a great place for those just getting starting in any area of development.
  • Saron Yitbarek [twitter] [site]: Inspiring the aspiring developers out there, and helping to create a community of communication and comraderie. A breath of fresh air, you should really check out her stuff.
  • Real Favicon Great for helping to get your favicon setup properly on your site, and also helps understand mobile support.
  • Ben Orenstein [twitter] [site]: His love for Vim and his desire to remove the friction from his everyday tool usage is just what I needed. Also, dude gives great talks. Like, seriously, great talks.
