Welcome to Picks of the month, where I share a few things I have found useful the last month.
It can be anything from blog posts and software tools to books and techniques.
This month I have a couple of resources I think you might really benefit from. One is a developer resource that any web developer should be familiar with, the other an aid for your mind.
I hope you enjoy this month’s picks!
#1 MDN - Mozilla Developer Network
If you are a front-end developer, you should bookmark this page:
I have always like the idea of meditation and mindfulness. It always was on my ‘someday’ list to get started with it in some form.
I was inspired by this talk by Igor Minar (from the Angular Core Team) from ng-conf 2015:
He also made a page for this particular talk that you can check out here:
During the talk, Igor recommends an app called Headspace. Headspace has guided meditations that are really great.
Headspace help you understand the concepts of meditation and mindfullness in a very smooth way. It’s mostly practical, but you gain some insight into the general practice as well, which is nice.
They have a huge library of guided (and un-guided) meditations that help you every step of the way. You can get started without knowing anything about the processes.
They also provide a 10-day free trail where you can do a 10-day start course to see if it’s a good fit for you. I highly recommend you try this service if you are at all curious about the benefits this can provide for you.
Take a look at Headspace’s website:
Headspace is available on the Web and as a mobile app:
