Weekly Top 5 #46 – Important Play, Flexbox Game and Kneeing Chair

newsletter-46

One Product: A Desk and Kneeing Chair

Sitting straight has probably been one of my biggest daily struggles. I would normally sit up straight first thing in the morning but as the day progress I would just slouch more and more.

One Game: For learning Flexbox

If you are a frontend developer, you are bound to have at least heard of Flexbox, the relatively new CSS3 layout methods as an alternative to abusing floats and tables. It’s not too hard to use, but it’s not the easiest to remember. This game is a pretty good game to help you learn to remember the syntaxes.

Having fun and playing is serious business. Plenty of play in childhood for happy, smart adults, keeping it up can make us smarter at any age. So get playing and stop being so serious 🙂

One Indiegogo Campaign: FormCards

This product reminds me a little of Sugru but in a reusable format, you can soften it with heat and reform it to whatever you need. I don’t have an exact idea what I will need it for, but I’ve already pledge toward it to make sure I get some

One Freebie: Photo Editing Software – Nik Collection

Photo editing software comes in all shapes and sizes, some are free but hard to use, others are expensive yet complicated. Nik Collection WAS expensive and easy to use, but since Google bought this company up, it is now FREE.
