Online tools and resources

Every once in a while you run into a great online tool or resource, and makes life as a developer easier. Moving between companies as I do, I often see that people are using services that provide lots of value, but are not necessarily well known by most. So in this post I will start by sharing a few of the services that I have come accross lately.

Docs and helpers

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/api – API browser for all Microsofts .NET API’s.

https://regexr.com – best quick regex testing site I know of.

https://cronexpressiondescriptor.azurewebsites.net – simple way of testing cron expressions.

http://rxwiki.wikidot.com/101samples – 101 RX samples for guidance.

Image manipulation

https://tinypng.com and https://squoosh.app – two fast and easy solutions for image compression.

https://www.base64-image.de – drag and drop to convert images to base64.

Slides and prototyping content

https://unsplash.com and https://pixabay.com – quickly search and download tons of free beautiful photos.

https://picsum.photos – lorem ipsum with images.

http://officeipsum.com, https://hipsum.co, https://pirateipsum.me and https://slipsum.com – my favorite ipsum generators.

Email

Who am I?

My name is Christian Holm Diget, and I work as an independent consultant, in Denmark, where I write code, give advice on architecture and help with training. On the side I get to do a bit of speaking and help with miscellaneous community events.

Some of my primary focus areas are code quality, programming languages and using new technologies to provide value.
