Today’s Readings

Let’s start with a little proficiency tip with 3 Keyboard Shortcuts I Wish I Learned Long Ago. I imagine most developers already know the one about switching between open applications (Cmd + Tab on Mac, Alt + Tab on PC), but the author has a couple variations on that!

I cannot imagine what scenario is missing from How to undo (almost) anything with Git. I assume there is at least one, I just cannot think of it…

Um, Quttons are freaking awesome… Makes me want to collect them all!! ;-)

And Gradify CSS is pretty freaking awesome too! Hard to imagine a way this could be used in production, but for a curated site, it would make for nice eye-candy!

Man, how things have changed since I saw my first <html> tag… :-)

And finally, a burger icon I could really sink my teeth into… :-)

Happy reading,
