As I go through my day, I often find IT links that are of interest to work I am doing. This is my latest set of links. As you can see, I am keen on cloud, software development, github, python, and IoT, to say the least.
- I was interested in testing out cloud sites, and I wanted a simple web site to test them out. I found this useful: Create a Minimal Coming Soon Page using HTML5 and CSS3.
- Later on, I was doing some cloud testing with node.js, Express and mongo, and I found this site great: Creating a Simple RESTful Web App with Node.js, Express, and MongoDB | Christopher Buecheler – Web, Writing, Cocktails and More.
- Recently I posted some sample code in github. If you want to do the same, you should get a refresher course in Markdown. Here’s a good link:
MarkdownPad – The Markdown Editor for Windows.
- The code I posted in github is here: https://github.com/blm849/Twitter-sample-code
- I am interested in learning more about Python these days. I found these links interesting: Deploy IPython Notebooks With Docker On Bluemix In Minutes (IT Best Kept Secret Is Optimization) and Automate the Boring Stuff with Python | Practical Programming for Total Beginners.
- If you are new or revisiting software development, you might find yourself on the horns of this dilemma, and if you are, then this piece could provide the answer you need: Should I Build a Site or an App? Yes!
- If you are interested in proxy servers, this is good: Bypass Heavy-Handed Web Filters with Your Own Proxy Server.
- Two good pieces of IT analysis, here: Why I’m Saying Goodbye to Apple, Google and Microsoft — Backchannel — Medium and here Redesigning Overcast’s Apple Watch app – Marco.org.
- And finally, here are a bunch of IoT related links:
- Leap Motion | Mac & PC Motion Controller for Games, Design, & More
- BeagleBone and Accessories in Canada Robotix.
- codergirljp: 434Mhz RF Transmitter/Receiver with the Arduino Micro.
- Intel® Curie™ Module: Unleashing Wearable Device Innovation.
- WiFi Module – ESP8266 – WRL-13252 – SparkFun Electronics.
- Using the Arduino Pro Mini 3.3V – learn.sparkfun.com.
