Weekly roundup, March 10, 2014

Topics: Incentivizing software issues, free images for your blog, testing Javascript, automating browser tests.

  • I think Donay has a really compelling idea, but I ran into a lot of problems with their site just trying to get an account set up. Maybe if more people express an interest in being able to ask for and provide incentives for project features/issues… I hope they can get some momentum going and turn it into something workable. Spread the word!
  • Bountysource is another service that lets people set bounties on existing Github issues they’d like completed. Visit my profile.
  • GettyImages strikes a good balance between copyright, intellectual property and fair use: Embed images for free in a non-commercial context.
  • I’m always looking for ways to increase productivity by automating processes. This week’s NuGet Package of the Week from Scott Hanselman shows how to use FluentAutomation (I love “fluent” syntax!) with Selenium and scriptcs to automate browser testing.


  • There’ve been a lot of windowing enhancement add-ons over the years; the new Preme for Windows looks pretty feature rich, with some useful hotkeys.

Coding, projects, etc.

If you’d like to support this blog and the work I do in general, I now have an Amazon Wishlist with hardware, software, etc. that I need. More options and information are coming soon.
