The Software We Pay For

We did a Web Developer Economics series a few years ago, where we looked at the various costs of being a web developer:

  1. Web Developer Economics: One-Off Software Costs
  2. Web Developer Economics: Hardware Costs
  3. Web Developer Economics: Monthly Service Costs
  4. Web Developer Economics: The Wrapup

I'm sure some of that software and hardware has changed since then, but the spirit is the same. It costs money to have the things you need to do this job.

I just wrote a similar article, but from the perspective of a business paying for the software it needs. That link is to Medium, but it was posted on the CodePen blog originally. Just giving that a shot to see what all the hubbub about Medium is about.

Dock Show & Tell

Someone wrote in asking about some icons in my Dock. I figured that might be a fun thing to share, and y'all can follow suit and share yours as well. I know "Docks" are a little Mac-centric, but feel free to share your most used apps on other platforms as well. I bet this changes quite a bit over the years, so it will be interesting to re-do this in years to come and see how it changes.
