Week 354 - Interesting links
Zube is virtual task board for your software development team. Zube ❤’s GitHub so your GitHub issues are automatically pulled into Zube, and your Zube data is synchronized with GitHub in real-time.
I’ve had a really quick play with this and was pretty impressed. I’ve wanted to use GitHub issues to manage projects in the past but they’ve never quite felt like they’re enough. Zube looks like it adds just enough functionality to make it possible. The only potential downside is that you have to grant Zube read/write access to code, issues, pull requests, wikis, settings, webhooks and services, and deploy keys of all your private and public repositories. I’d certainly feel more comfortable if it didn’t have access to everything.
The Redecentralize conference brings together people working on decentralization projects with others outside the movement - to drive adoption and sustainability of decentralized alternatives. We’ll be showcasing projects, looking at open strategies, marketing, design and business models.
This conference sounds right up my street. Unfortunately, prior engagements meant that I couldn’t attend. I haven’t found much written up about the conference but there are tweets, videos and notes that capture some of the things that went on. — CR
This image caught my eye as it reminded me of the tidal pattern I see in my Thames Time Lapse timeslice video. The picture is of the Tidal Ribbon installation at the Exploratorium in San Francisco. — CR
I was impressed to see this command line tool which makes it very easy to obtain a certificate and setup SSL on Apache - something I’ve found a real pain in the past. It’s particularly interesting now that Let’s Encrypt’s SSL certificates are trusted by all major browsers. — JM
