Live Share / Teletype

Amanda Silver introduces “Visual Studio Live Share”, which: enables developers using Visual Studio 2017 or Visual Studio Code to collaborate in real-time! This goes a bit deeper than just a multiple-cursors thing. Both people get all the same fancy VS code UI stuff like IntelliSense and Peek. GitHub’s Atom editor also has Teletype, which: lets developers share their workspace with team members and collaborate on code in real time. Atom has the concept of a host, in which: As the host moves between files, collaborators follow along with the active tab automatically. I’d be remiss not to mention CodePen has Collab Mode and Professor Mode, which require zero setup. Shoot someone a URL and go!

Simple Patterns for Separation (Better Than Color Alone)

Color is pretty good for separating things. That’s what your basic pie chart is, isn’t it? You tell the slices apart by color. With enough color contrast, you might be OK, but you might be even better off (particularly where accessibility is concerned) using patterns, or a combination. Patrick Dillon tackled the Pie Chart thing Enhancing Charts With SVG Patterns: When one of the slices is filled with something more than color, it’s easier to figure out [who the Independents are]: See the Pen Political Party Affiliation – #2 by Patrick Dillon (@pdillon) on CodePen.
