Let’s Encrypt offering free encryption

Encryption is increasingly an important and relevant topic when it comes to web development (security, ServiceWorker-powered offline pages, etc), but the costs involved make it prohibitive to devs wanting to dip their toes in the subject. Let’s Encrypt looks to offer a free service which should be a big help to everyone in making the web more secure but also more available when stuck in a tunnel somewhere without wifi.

Tim Kadlec discusses it in his “Taking Let’s Encrypt for a Spin” article.

How Music Affects Your Productivity

I had already come to many of the same conclusions after working in a busy, open office for years but this article sums up a lot about how useful listening to music can be regarding productivity.

I bought the Denon AH-D600 headphones a year or so back and they remain one of the best investments I’ve made as not only does music sound great (particularly base-driven content), but they double-up as an effective headset when I need to Skype colleagues to discuss work-related tasks.
