This week Alastair wraps up his favourite discoveries from the past five days.
It's great when keeping track of football is made a pleasant experience. There's some awesome web designers who are putting their skills to listing match fixtures. During the world cup we had the Tap In Guide, and now that the Premiere League is back there's the fantastic looking PLFixtures. It's a really simple fullscreen experience that works in your phone's browser too!
Even if you're a senior creative, there's always a shortcut you wish you'd learned earlier! If you use Photoshop, Illustrator, CSS, Git, or VIM there's a shortcut here that might shave a few seconds off your work day... though a few of them seem like they need six fingers!
JavaZone do event advertising right!
To promote the JavaZone conference in Olso this year, the organisers of the event have put out three themed videos, taking more than a little inspiration from the biggest TV hits of the last few years. If you appreciate a good pun and are a sucker for great TV parodies, check out 'Writing Bad', 'Game of Codes', and above 'House of Codes'.

This week Al took a tongue-in-cheek look at trying to explain your Web Development job to your grandparents, and how to tackle questions about 'hacking' and 'The Matrix' without so much as a sigh.

Why is this app such a hit after only a few days? Probably because it combines two cool video techniques - timelapse and image stabilisation - into one, which means you can create sped-up videos without all of the judder of a hand-held camera. It's currently number 2 in the App Store after being released this week!

I'm a consultant passionate about you, Manchester and the burger scene. Trying to be better than yesterday.

Ever been put on the spot about your Web Developer job and had to say " I work on the internet" because your job is hard to explain? Here's some help with those classic questions and creating answers which just about anyone will understand.
No! Hackers do know a lot about code, but it's partly my job to make sure websites aren't getting hacked so I can keep the people who own the websites happy! These days 'hacker' can be a positive term, it often means someone who customises technology to make it work better. I'm not a hacker. Promise.
Not exactly. There's a lot of overlap, but that's technically the job of a Web Designer. What you see when you go online is often designed by someone who loves to be creative and is concered with the visuals. I'm concerned with how, and if, a website works but that's still creative in a different way. I spend a lot of my time fixing things and making them better, and I do that with special languages called code...
The web is made up of code yes, and I do spend a lot of time on a computer, but it's not quite as complicated as random charaters on a screen. There are lots of different 'languages' that make up the internet, a bit like those green letters, but the ones we use, like HTML, make sense!
The languages look scrambled to anyone who doesn't know them, but they are actually very logical. I know a few of them very well. Don't worry, there aren't any robots taking over the world. Actually, maybe there are robots taking over the world, but I don't know about it either.
A Web Developer just makes things for the internet, as part of a larger team. No Powepoint or Microsoft Word. There are roughly 860 million websites on the internet and that number keeps getting bigger all the time! eBay, Twitter, Facebook, Google, they all need developers on their team, and so do the other hundreds of millions!
Yep that too. Making websites work properly on a phone is one of the jobs a Web Developer has to think about now. But then there's App Development which is separate, and then there's Web Apps and... basically there are lots of different developers out there now doing all kinds of interesting stuff to make the world more interesting.
Yes, but not because I'm a developer.
I'm an Internet Explorer who's probably online right now.
Keen eyed Twitterers noticed this week that Google's listing for Greggs, the national bakers, included a logo pulled automatically from the internet. Never a good idea. This logo included the phrase 'providing sh*t to sc*m for over 70 years'.
The Greggs social team took to Twitter for a very public appeal to @GoogleUK, dubbed #fixGreggs. Google responded in kind and the whole conversation was a huge social success.
Some lessons to learn from the incident: Social Media is the perfect platform for demonstrating a company's humanity and sense of humour, automation will eventually fail if it's not monitored carefully, and donuts are the universal currency of bribery.
Rock star developers from Silicon Valley prove that you can have a personal brand as a developer.
