Google Docs: Forms
This isn’t exactly breaking news, but I only just heard about it so I thought I’d share. The free service Google Docs allows you to build web forms from within it. It has a pretty limited feature set. Basically you just provide the question, answer type, help text, and whether it’s required or not. Add as many questions as you’d like and save it and you get the ability to embed the form as an iFrame. The form then turns into a Spreadsheet in your Google Docs, and submitted answers are appended to the spreadsheet. Kinda neat, but like I said, very limited feature set compared to something like Wufoo. The big advantage here is you can build as many and as big of forms as you want for free.
Noura Yehia (from Noupe) has launched a new site called DevSnippets. It’s a really neat browseable and searchable “Online Code Snippet Gallery“. There is already some great stuff in there, and I’m sure as the site grows it will become a go-to spot when looking for specific code examples to add to your site.
