The Hacker Shelf is a “community-curated collection of free books” with a primary focus on technical, programming topics. I’d recommend a bookmark of this one, could be handy.
Later this week I hope to do a proper write-up on this project, but while it’s still “hot off the press”, here’s a link to my latest work: thrifttrac.com. I designed and built the site in less than one week, just in time for my client’s appearance at a tradeshow this evening. In addition, I also designed the ThriftTrac logo.
Key tools I used in building this site were:
Atomic is a beautiful looking prototype software. I especially love how it allows for collaboration and features a “visual version history”.
Design – Work your way up from a blank canvas, or pull in designs from Photoshop or Sketch.
Prototype – Lay out your states and instantly animate between them, without coding a thing.
Share – Share your prototypes with anyone or view on any device via a humble URL.

Carbo is an iPad app for capturing your writings and drawings. Once you’ve brought them into your device, it gives you options for making edits, organizing, and more. It seems similar to Adobe Shape CC, but has more features.
Carbo is an application for people who love handwriting. Just use your favorite pen and paper as you usually do, without any constraint. Carbo will let you capture, edit, and organize your notes, design sketches, and whiteboard drawings, bringing handwriting into the digital age.
This is the most interesting and exciting news to come out of Automattic (parent company of WordPress) in a while. I’m intrigued to see how WooCommerce evolves.
Automattic CEO Matt Mullenweg announced today that the company has acquired WooCommerce, WordPress’ most popular e-commerce platform. The plugin recently passed seven million downloads and stats from BuiltWith show that WooCommerce is dominating global e-commerce platforms, powering roughly 30% of all online stores.This is Automattic’s largest acquisition to date, bringing 55 new employees into the company from 16 countries for a total of 370 Automatticians. Mullenweg confirmed that the acquisition includes Woo, Sensei, and all of the other plugins and themes.
