To go to Stack Overflow, I type "s" in the location bar and hit enter. That says something about me as a developer and a person. Namely, that I use Stack Overflow a lot.
So I wondered what my other "one-letter" sites are. I compiled a list, excluding work-internal tools and results where the first match in Chrome was a search rather than a site.
Some of these I don't actually visit often. They just happen to be the first result for their letter.
I've used PluralSight to get up to speed on some new technologies. But my favorite feature is Skill IQ, which helps me estimate my understanding of various tech subjects.
My highest score is 92nd percentile on the HTML assessment. I'm pretty darn proud of that.
I use Bluehost to host my personal site, and a few other projects.
I work here!
This helps me keep up with what's happening in the world. I follow general web feeds like Smashing Magazine and CSS-Tricks, some tech privacy news-ish sites like EFF.org, and personal blogs of mostly web performance-focused folks.
It's a great product. But I'm done selling my personal data in exchange for a quality email client. I'm transitioning to ProtonMail.
I recently worked on some problems with embedded content from our video vendor, TVPage. They have extensive documentation. It's pretty impressive.
These days I tend to use CodePen more than JSFiddle. But both are invaluable for quick tests of JS ideas.
I'm sure they're fine people, but I have no recollection of why I was visiting this site.
I travel regularly, so this site is indispensable.
(Well I kinda kind, because I'm still weeding a few out of our code base.)
Wow I love this site. I pay for it monthly because, well, it's worth it. And I want to have addresses with custom domains.
Experts like Bruce Schneier indicate we should use Signal instead of email for secure communications. Fair enough, but one can only implore people to install Signal so many times before earning the "Chicken Little" title.
When I first saw regular expressions, I thought there was no way I'd understand them. I owe the maintainers of this site a lot of free coffee. With its help, I've saved hours of manual effort by using regular expressions developed/tested on RegEx101.
Stack Overflow has helped me through a lot of programming troubles. Besides its Developer Story feature, I think of my questions and answers on that site as a sort of portfolio - it's more descriptive of my day-to-day work than I could be.
Twitter is a food fight. But if you approach it with that understanding, it can be a great tool.
I recently used Streamlabs OBS to record my debugging a performance problem. Then I used Vimeo to send the video to a vendor. I generally enjoy Vimeo's interface more than YouTube's. But you can't beat the selection on YouTube!
Patrick Meenan has done the web a great service by building and maintaining this site. I use it regularly to diagnose and resolve performance issues for Crutchfield.
My company has a lot of legacy code written with jQuery. Thanks to Babel, jQuery is less necessary. I've used this site to translate some of our jQuery-dependent functionality to vanilla JS.
These letters had no non-internal, non-search results: e, i, l, o, q, u, x, and z.
I'd love to see how some others' are similar and how they're different. If you write about it, please comment!
