There are several websites (online app/services) out there with the capability to make anyone’s day sucks less. This list is my attempt to keep tabs on them.
- Livecoding.tv. Watch people codes (and for beginners, time to learn from pros or be confused by them).
- Texts. Textbooks are exorbitantly expensive. Let’s buy cheaper ones.
- Quartzy. Free lab management platform. I heard it is completely free.
- Pexels Videos. Free stock footages.
- Privacy Tools. Those with paranoia about web security in the online world, this website has the resources for you.
- Looksharp. I was struggling to find a place to do internship. I found this website when I already decided where I wanted to intern.
- Meister Task. It looks like Trello on steroid.
- The Experiment Journal of Results. I have browsed their collection yet. They published results from all publicly funded research (those that got backed by Experiment crowd-sourcing platform).
- ChemAxon. They make great chemistry software, like Marvin JS and Marvin Sketch.
- Smallpdf. Great online app for converting documents. When I wrote this page, they do not support batch processing.
- The Data Journalism Handbook. This is “a free, open source reference book for anyone interested in the emerging field of data journalism”, says the web page.
- protocols.io. Share your protocols online here. They have (seemingly) decent mobile application.
- Cold Spring Harbor Protocols. Bunch of protocols for making reagents or making assays. Cool beans for life science researchers.
- iobio. They host modern-looking web application for genomic analysis.
- Statistics for Biologists. Here is Nature.com collection of articles in statistical biology.
off the record
What I heard, there is a website known as Science Hub that could provide access to papers behind paywall, and a library known as Library Genesis to get free textbooks, provided there is a PDF version for it by the vendor/publisher (check with Amazon).
