97 Things Every Programmer Should Know - O'Reilly Media

After I had been programming for awhile, I sought a job in what I hoped would be such a shop: a place where things were done "right". Instead, I have always found myself in positions where creative people hack code and implement systems. And, some of those systems were high quality enterprise applications. I suspect, though, that my vision of a 'world class programming shop' may not really exist.

Things - task management on the Mac

Do you want to write a song, plan the next big project, improve the house, or write a thesis? Whatever it is, you can customize Things to make it perfect for your needs. Every project you add to Things automatically shows up in the sidebar so you can access it at any time. And you can hide projects you’re currently not working on by putting them in Someday - this keeps your sidebar clean and lets you focus on the things that are relevant now. Add Areas to the sidebar so you can group projects and to-dos together: “Family”, “Work”, “Hobby”, “Health”, or whatever makes sense to you. Add tags to your to-dos for added context - use “Home” for all to-dos you want to do at home, “Errands” for things you need to buy, “High” for very important tasks, and so on. Ruby Article Index.
