NixMashup for January 9, 2014

Greetings from Vermont! We begin this NixMashup with the need for speed to the upcoming Eclipse Conference. The Elementary OS Dock Application gets an upgrade and is available for Ubuntu. We’ve got free Scala books and Gimp (also free) shows its muscle in transforming an elephant to a dinosaur. An in-the-know and articulate developer captures the state of client-side development in 2014, while in 2013, skillset keyword search statistics indicate that Java Developers had a pretty good year on both sides of the app. Our Environment Story describes a real company making real plastic products from carbon pollutants in the air.

If you want to catch all of the NixMashup link action and see the links as they are created, follow the NixMash Twitter feed at http://twitter.com/nixmash. Most NixMashup links are first posted to the NixMash feed for later compilation here in NixMashup.
