Here's some products and services I use that I think are pretty great. These are
referral links and have bonuses for both of us if you're interested in signing
- Airtable - Are you using a
spreadsheet as a makeshift database? Now you don't have to anymore. Airtable
is perfect for that inbetween place where your spreadsheet has become unwieldy
but you don't want to deal with a database. Very easy to use.
- Chase Sapphire Preferred Card - 60,000 point signup bonus. This is a great travel card with a bunch of benefits.
- AirBnB - This is my go-to for
affordable places to stay when traveling. If you sign up with this link,
you'll get $40 off your first stay and $15 off an "experience" (personally I
haven't tried booking any of those through AirBnB yet but they do seem to have
a nice selection of classes and tours and such)
- AirBnB - Alternatively, if you have some extra
space in your home, rent it out and make some cash!
- Dropbox - Back up your files and share them across
computers. Easily create links to share files with others. I recently upgraded
to the Pro plan and it's been invaluable.
- Simple Analytics - Easy
to use, privacy-friendly website analytics. Stop giving away your visitors'
data to Google.
- Transferwise - Now that I'm
living overseas this is a godsend. Easily transfer money internationally with
great exchange rates and minimal fees.
- Linode -
Hosting this website along with pretty much everything else I've done over the
years, Linode has been incredibly reliable and easy to use. I recommend them
to everyone looking for website hosting.
- Zoho - A drop-in replacement for Google's GSuite. I
moved my mail hosting there in order to reduce my reliance on Google and
they've been great.
- Reuven Lerner - I've been following
Reuven's Better Developers newsletter for a few years now and there's always
interesting nuggets of Python knowledge. I did the Weekly Python Exercise
course too and there's a lot to learn no matter how long you've been
programming Python. Highly recommended.
