Friday Finds: The Best of Learning, Design & Technology | October 4, 2019

“Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others. Unsuccessful people are always asking, ‘What’s in it for me?’” – Brian Tracy

Today fate is putting you together with this week’s best from the world of learning, technology and design. Have a fantastic day! Cheers.

Thanks for reading! If you find anything good, forward it to a friend or spread the word with a tweet.
