- Signing Your Git Commits With GPG - This is so seamless that everyone should do it.
- Hitler Uses Docker - I know, the whole "Downfall with new captions" thing has been done to death, but really, this one is pretty funny.
- Building and testing a Phoenix JSON API - Advice and code snippets from Thoughtbot. When you're ready to try, you can head over to Dockerizing a Phoenix Project to keep your work isolated.

- Veertu - Native virtualization for macOS to let you run Windows and Linux VMs on your Mac. Haven't looked at it in any detail but potentially promising.
- New Ad Blocker (Beta) - From Optimal, works by dumping things at the DNS level. Assuming you want to trust their DNS servers, anyhow. Free, but they also have an optional revenue-sharing product that brings back selected ads.
- Protocol Buffers v3.0.0 - The latest round of Google's data interchange format.

- BrowserWarrier - Rails 5 gem to reject IE 6/7/8 users (and give them advice on getting a real browser) with one line of code.
- Paw 3 - A little pricey, but the best tool for working with HTTP APIs from OS X that I've found.

- The Ruby Bibliography - A list of academic papers using ruby. Aw, our little language is all growed up!
- LFE - Lisp Flavored Erlang, just in case Elixir isn't obscure and cutting-edge enough for you.
- MiniStatsD: A simple StatsD client in Ruby - An easy way to see the StatsD metrics that your application is sending while you're still in development. I've used Dummy StatsD in the past for the same thing.
