For simple-to-complicated projects, it is always a very good idea to get organized.

And, once other people are involved, using project management apps is a must to make sure things are all under control.

BamBam!, a very nice project management app, which is free for up to 10 users, can be what you are looking for.

BamBam!

Signing up is very easy,  takes only a few seconds and going through the rather extensive tutorial tour will probably convince you that it is the right too.

The project + tasks can be created instantly and “e-mail to task” feature helps a lot to add new ones.

BamBam! Project

There is a totally customizable news feed that gives access to absolutely everything going on.

The real-time system and e-mail notifications are also a huge plus to keep connected with the project and teammates even when you are not on your desktop.

BamBam Permissions

It integrates fully with the Chime module for better time management for each task and with Springloops for version control with deployment tools.

The workflow options and being able to migrate projects between them is something great as a single login for project management and not having to switch between apps, websites or widgets save a lot of time.

Like said, it is totally free for up to 10 users which is pretty awesome and will cover many teams.

For larger teams, it is still priced reasonably ($7/user).

Also, there’s no limit on storage or projects and there are lots of other handy features. Simply, it is a must check.

Long shadow effects became very popular with the flat design trend and a new solution pop-ups each day to simplify creating them.

A free Photoshop extension, Long Shadows Generator, is probably the best solution for Photoshop users.

It is pretty straightforward, just apply the shadow length, opacity, angle and set the opacity. It is all ready.

When working on any type of documents (whether it is code or not), we may want to compare different versions to see what has changed.

Some editors have this feature built-in where some don’t. Mergely is a free-to-use web app for making such a difference analysis quickly.

Documents can be uploaded with ease (or by mentioning URLs), the differences will be highlighted and it is also possible to merge them.

Mergely is also an open source JavaScript library (non-commercial) where you can integrate into your own projects.

Let’s say, you created the layout and getting prepared to export all the layers for front-end coding. This would take so much time if done manually.

For Photoshop, there are some built-in methods (like an export script). However, Breezy, a free Photoshop extension handles this process nicer.

You can select the layers to be exported and they will be ready very quickly (with the layer names, transparencies, etc.) inside a pre-defined folder.

For PHP developers, there are 2 major ways to send HTTP requests: cURL or fsockopen. And, it is hard to know which one will be available in your/customer’s hosting.

Requests is a stable PHP library that uses cURL or fsockopen (depending on the availability) and provides a consistent API.

Requests - PHP HTTP Library

It simplifies sending requests, accepts HEAD, GET, POST, PUT, DELETE or PATCH and adding headers, form data + multipart files.

The library also works with international domain names, authentication, auto-decompressing gzipped responses and much more.

To sum up, Requests is a must-bookmark for easy-to-use and hosting-friendly HTTP requests.
