Welcome to another "Weekly Concerns". This is a post-a-week series of interesting links, relevant to programming and programmers. You can check out previous Weekly Concerns posts in the archive.

  • Need a real API for demonstrating Ajax stuff? Check out The Example API. It provides all kinds of methods (GET, POST, etc), content responses (JSON, JSONP, XML, etc), response codes (404, 500, etc). Great for cross-domain testing, and it's what I used for my jsonp example post.
  • Something to think about: Why Link Shorteners Harm Your Readers
  • How to create better cards (in Pivotal, LeanKit, whatever card tracking/PM system you're using). I find the idea of gherkin/cucumber tests in the card to be an intriguing one.
  • Need a dummy placeholder image? Use to get them dynamically.

Ever experience the new wave? Next wave? Dream wave? Flava flav? A guy named Dave? Men's aftershave? A voodoo conclave? 12 Years a Slave? Shortwave? OR CYBERPUNK!? Ever stared at a CRT wistfully?

I didn't think so.

If you have an interesting link that you'd like to see in Weekly Concerns, leave a comment or contact me.
