After many failed attempts to learn (or even like) programming, I’m always looking for alternative ways of creating digital products and websites without code. Chat bots are a seriously hot topic for 2016 and Chatfuel is an intuitive bot builder for non-dev-designy-folks like myself. It’s easy enough to use, I just need an idea now!

Map Stack makes designing maps free, easy and fun. Easy in the sense you don’t have to create maps from scratch, but hard in the sense the UI of the website isn’t great. Once I got my head around it though, I realised this is actually a pretty cool resource. Hopefully they’ll add the ability to embed maps soon as well.

Back to bots! I stumbled across this fully customisable Sketch UI kit for Messenger the other day and know it will come in handy. Would have been especially good a few weeks ago when I was working on a chat bot brand, but that’s always the case with these things.

It’s no secret I’m a sucker for a good pun, which is why Hemingboard caught my eye this week. Get synonyms, rhymes, and puns in any app, instantly. I bought myself a copy of the Mac version to support the com-pun-ny.

Keep the rhymes right and the puns tight
