A look at Dash, docsets for developers

A look at Dash, docsets for developers

Recently, I read (shared on our Facebook page) the article Productivity Tips for Developers over on the RocketTheme blog.   If you’ve been a reader for awhile, I am always looking for ways to improve productivity.  In this article, there were some great tips and reminders for developers, especially if you work remotely.  One that I often forget is BREAKS!  Yes, I know, it seems obvious, to take a few minutes away to allow thoughts to gel and ideas to form but sometimes, I just get so caught up.

I ran across this post titled Solar Tent Charges Your Gadgets.  On the things that jumped out at me is that it weighs 8 lbs. which is heavier than the combined devices I carried all together.
