Hey hey hey, I'm back with the 6th installment of Ultra List! Last month has been so hectic, but I wouldn't miss this for anything. I know you guys love the resources. 😉
Let me start with the regular stuff first. There's plenty to show this month. I have an open-source project we released in August that I want to show you guys as well, so stick around until the end!
First things first! Let's explore the free stuff. Enjoy, and don't forget to thank the makers! 💝

1. Brogrammer We released Brogrammer recently. Long working hours make it hard to beat a sedentary lifestyle and stay fit. I can empathize with people who do a lot of sedentary work and have very little time in their daily schedules to exercise. I've been there myself, and it's very easy to spiral down into very unhealthy patterns 🙇🏻♂️.
Brogrammer is meant to help you break these patterns and squeeze mini workouts into your busy routines. 🏃♂️ It's as easy as clicking a button, and the web-app will keep sending you alerts 📢 every once in a while to perform a random exercise for x duration or y number of repetitions. If you want more control, just create your own challenge and set parameters like type of exercises, level of difficulty, frequency of alerts, and more. And the best part? This is open source 🥳🎉🎉 , just like all of the other stuff Team Xenox 🔥 has released so far this year.
So if you have any cool feature ideas in mind, don't wait for anyone else to add them. Just build them yourself! 🛠
You can check out the web-app here. 👉🏼 Link
Note: I want to state this very explicitly that this is no substitute for a healthy work-life balance and a routine that doesn't drive you crazy. Eat well, maintain good sleeping habits, and exercise regularly. And use this app for those days when you can't manage to go to the gym.
When the product went live, we also published a short post about it here on DEV.
We received a lot of feedback about how the product came across. Many of you told us that while the idea was neat, the imagery and name made it look exclusive to men, which wasn't our intention at all. We would like to rectify that. And so, we've decided to change its name to BrogrammHer. How do you guys feel about this? You can let me know in the comments.
You can also vote on this in our Telegram channel! Come join us for awesome dev content delivered straight to you daily! 👉🏼 Link
