Sometimes for work purposes you have to use a Windows or a Mac, but you want your development environment exactly the same as you production environment. Which in my case is a Linux Machine. So I my development is in a virtualbox container, and I have my test browser and IDE in Windows. First you need to download virtualbox and install it on your host machine. Go ahead and download what your development machine will be(eg. ubuntu server), this will take some time.
A lot of time that I spend on this blog is looking for free legal photos. I have used:
I have also used flickr.com and restricted my search by Creative Commons License. I do this by clicking advanced search and selecting “Only search within Creative Commons-licensed content”, “Find content to use commercially”, and “Find content to modify, adapt, or build upon”. I can then use the images legally by making sure I reference the user and link to where I got it from.
I have found a really good solution for stock photos in Dollar Photo Club. It is $99 for 99 photos that I can use them up in a year. Compared to other websites this is very cheap. It saves me a lot of time, I no longer have to scour other sites for my blog post image. It is very much worth $99. This post’s image is from the same site.
UPDATE: Dollar Photo Club has been bought and replaced by Adobe Stock. Boooooo!
