Building Your Product in Public
Examples of building a product publicly with input from potential users resulting in increased buy-in, early feedback, getting people excited and fostering a sense of transparency. Several services listed like Kickstarter, Customer.io and Medium that help building in public.
Monitor Cloud Servers from your Linux Desktop Panel
A new desktop utility to monitor your DigitalOcean Cloud Servers, allowing you to see which droplets are active, to reboot droplets and other functions. The most novel part is that it’s designed to be used in your Linux Desktop Panel. Screenshot is on the post. Apparently from the comment thread the app is built by a new DigitalOcean developer. Smart move on the part of DigitalOcean.

Very little source code comparison, but good description of the higher-level differences between Scala and Java.
