My son asked this week about what the easiest way to make a flowchart (for a Factorio mod he’s designing!).

I pointed him at Miro, and it made me realise there’s actually quite a few online tools I use a lot at home and work, which are worth a shout-out.

Some of these I may have mentioned previously:

  • – an awesome online “visual collaboration platform”.
  • Trello – a nice collaborative Kanban type board.
  • Doodle – a collaborate polling system, great for fixing a date for meetings.
  • mentimeter – interactive presentation software, great for adding interactivity.
  • – not free, but a really good wireframing system for knocking together visual prototypes.
  • – speaking of prototypes, heroku lets you knock up functional web app prototypes really quickly.
