It’s a little late, but I’ve got a few awesome links for this week’s bookmarks bar. They include a great new piece of open source software, an update to an awesome web development framework and some suggestions for self improvement for developers.
Tox is a brand new piece of open source software for secure messaging, calls and video chat. It was created to provide a more secure alternative to Skype following the news that Skype was providing data to the NSA. While it is not in wide release at this time, you can pull from the Tox git repository and build the application on your machine, if you would like.
While I can’t say that I agree that all of these are absolutely necessary, many of these can help you become a much more efficient developer at the least. I would recommend the section on pushing for more automation.
Twitter’s Bootstrap framework for front-end web development has just unleashed the release candidate of version 3. The framework boasts an all new flattened look with a focus on speed improvements. Don’t like the look? There are plenty of add ons out there to customize Bootstrap to your liking!
Thanks for checking out this week’s links. Found any cool Bootstrap designs? Let me know on Twitter!
