Along with avoiding @ewanmcintosh’s “keynote-speaker-sponsor-driven” & keeping to
@magsamond’s “non-hierarchical, open, peer-to-peer” I think early #teachmeet principals of everyone being willing to participate & serendipity of random were interesting ways to change dynamics.

Thanks for this. Earlier in the year when schools were closed here I was racking what is left of my memory for a piece of freeware I used to use (perhaps pre osx) that did a little of this, system extension maybe.. I think I used it with Marritech…
OSB looks marvellous I’ll certainly try it if we go back into school closures here.

If I ever get to take the class to the woods again this will be useful.
We're obsessed with making web developers' lives easier at Browserling, so we created a collection of the most popular developer tools all in one place. We love simplicity so we made them very simple and obvious how to use. No ads, bloated dialogs, or useless checkboxes. Just tools. All free. Press button, get result. Here they are!
Lots of useful looking tools that work in the browser. EG: Convert TSV to XML, Convert CSV to JSON, URL encode/decode, HTML escape/unescape, huge bunch of text tools…
