Link Roundup - February 23rd 2014

I haven’t done one of these for a while, however I’ve been insanely busy and have been stockpiling a whole bunch of interesting links! adds webhooks – yay! adds unique user tracking, for exceptions and crashes – very handy to work out if there’s a bunch of errors all caused by a single user, or distributed across many users.

Social Kit – Free Photoshop Plugin For Designing Social Profiles And Pages. Currently supports 4 social networks, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and Google+, and contains templates that allow you to see how things will look when live.

SQL joins visualised using venn diagrams – the actual page title is “…visualised in a surprising way”, but really there’s not much surprise involved. Venn diagrams are hardly revolutionary, but these diagrams could be a handy resource for explaining joins to junior developers. Do junior developers even know what joins are these days, or do they just use O/RMs?

How I'm thinking about browsers these days – pretty valid really, even if you do want to argue about semantics of the word choices.

Checklist: What NOT to do in ASP.NET – Hanselman’s post about a bunch of stuff that should be no surprise to most ASP.NET developers, but probably worth a scan anyway. Did you know he’s a diabetic?

If you don’t use SublimeText then you can switch off about here – although to be honest you’d do yourself a favour if you went and checked it out. Don’t be put off by the fact that many of the links below include screenshots of OSX, SublimeText works really well on Windows too.

18 Essential Plugins To Get More Out Of SublimeText – I don’t use any of these and still reckon I get a lot of out of SublimeText, but YMMV.

SublimeText Cheat Sheet – a collation of keyboard shortcuts that you could probably find by reading some documentation.

Flatland is a theme/colour scheme for SublimeText 2 and 3, mostly derived from Soda.
