Work Links

The everchanging, continuously updated reference repository of “the other tools” besides the everyday basics from Adobe, Google, Microsoft and Atlassian. I keep these links handy for particular project tasks or new promising services to try out that might turn into everyday tools. 

For an even bigger list, check out the tool collection from cocofax.

We give to others what we want to use ourselves. I made this list for myself, but would be happy if you found it useful too. Anything missing?

  1. Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?

    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different
    then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    1. Hi DEATH AND OBITUARY,
      no problem, I don’t know BlogEngine or B2evolution. Heard of Drupal. I think the main question is how much time you want to spend on coding and bugfixing. Even though I know HTML and CSS, I didn’t want to spend hours coding where I could spend them creating content or playing with my son. I decided on self-hosted WordPress with a German Provider specialized in Word Press Blogs (Raidboxes), and a Pro Subscription of Elementor, an Editor that installs on top of WordPress and provides an interface where you can create layouts more easy and flexible than with the WordPress interface (small learning curve into Elementor, but nothing serious). There are a ton of ready-made themes (free and paid) for the Elementor editor, and a lot of extensions supplying extra modules, like crocoblocks.

      I ended up installing an “empty” “core template” called “Hello” (you need one for Elementor to work) and built all pages from scratch. Will probably get some of the crocoblock modules for extra cool page elements. Hope that helps.

      I think if you give it time and check out a lot of options in detail, after a couple of weeks you’ll be drawn to a particular hardware/software combination that feels right for your needs, personality and work style. It’ll be the one you’ll end up thinking about the most. All the best mate!
