Working in technology can be stressful, and every once in a while it's nice to brighten up things with some humor. One way is to create silly O'Reilly Book Covers.
If your not familiar with O'Reily Books - they are known technology books with some animals on the cover. They cover just about every possible technology segment and have been around for years.
Insult your co-workers with snarky O RLY parody book covers!

Markdown formating is becoming really popular. Cool apps like Notion is making is easy to copy/paste data. Markdown is also very popular in the Wiki community.
One of the challenges of Markdown is making tables. Thankfully sites like Table Generator makes it easy to create table. Simply define the number of rows and columns - and presto you have a working Markdown template to fill in.
As the official Markdown documentation states, Markdown does not provide any special syntax for tables. Instead it uses HTML <table> syntax. But there exist Markdown syntax extensions which provide additional syntax for creating simple tables.
Sample seven-day table.

There are a lot of services/solutions to creating mock-up and a quick Google search for "iPhone Mockups" produce about 50,800,000 results. Yikes! How can one find good quality Mockups to use in Photoshop, Sketch or Affinity Photo?
Facebook? Yes, that Facebook. They have a developer area where you can download all sorts of device design ideas which you can download and use as mockups.
Facebook supports a diverse audience around the world and an equally diverse set of devices. To emphasize that in our design mocks, we redrew a range of devices to show the global diversity of the people using our products. Each device comes with a bitmap of the device (with and without shadows) and the original Sketch file for that device.
We?ve incorporated many of these devices into Origami and worked with the Framer Team to add them to Framer as well.
While Facebook has redrawn and shares these assets for the benefit of the design community, Facebook does not own any of the underlying product or user interface designs. Please do not repackage and redistribute these as your own.
Using the iPhone XS Max, and Dell XPS design I created the sample layout in Affinity Designer:

Ascii Art is a popular way to highlight text. In the 80s and 90s it was popular to show Ascii art in popular chat rooms at Delphi Internet or Compuserv. Nowadays, Ascii art is used for terminal login headlines.
Patorjk's Text to ASCII Art tool is a great way to create all sorts of Ascii art.
I originally couldn't think of a name for the app, and I thought ASCII Art of pizza is called "Pizza ASCII Art", so what this app generates should be called "Text ASCII Art". However, the name was a little awkward, and I noticed some people were calling it "Text to ASCII Art Generator" (I guess they assumed I forgot a word). When I saw this I realized that was a better name. While coding up version 2.0, I decided to rename the app to add in the "to" and to capitalize on the "ASCII" part.
There are 174 fonts in four categories: 53 Feature FIGlet Fonts, 10 ANSI FIGlet Fonts, 75 Regular FIGlet Fonts and 36 AOL Macro Fonts.
The "Test All" is a good way to look at your text in all the fonts!
You can't cut/paste the output into Slack. The best way to display in Slack is to use a screenshot
If you use like the Text to Ascii Art tool, there is a Chrome Extension. Now you can easily create Ascii Art whenever you need it.
There is an Ascii Art Web Ring where you can find other sites that offer Ascii arts.
