Weekly Tech Roundup

This week’s Tech Roundup includes WordPress infographics, free fonts, and a new security tool for small businesses.

New Tool to Help Small Businesses Plan for Cyberattack – The FCC is developing a tool to help small businesses with their security planning. The tool will ask a series of questions and output policies and suggestions based on those results. Be on the lookout for it later this month.

20 High Quality Free Fonts Every Designer Should Own – As an admitted font hoarder, I was excited to see this as a reminder of some of the fonts I lost in a recent upgrade (the one thing I forgot to back up – ugh!). It was great to somewhat replenish my stash.

WordPress Developer Tools – Two tools to check out if you make WordPress websites.

15 Entertaining & Informative WordPress Infographics – Exactly what the title indicates, these are interesting and fun infographics. If you work with WordPress you’ll appreciate them.

A Brief History of Web Standards – Another infographic. This one is very informative. It takes you all the way back to 1962! It covers technology, typography, and web standards.

15 Point Checklist: WordPress Start-Up Guide After Installation – A handy guide for what to do after you install WordPress. There’s an pared-down advanced version and a more detailed beginner version. I can see this being really useful for both types of users, particularly for beginners as it explains what everything what each is and why it should be done.

Have a great weekend!
