Honeymooning with a DZone Shirt
Let’s play spot the DZone “<dev>” t-shirt again.  First picture … there it is!  In addition to honeymoons, you can also wear the DZone shirt to conferences, block parties, while saving a puppy and for Mt. Everest expeditions.  Congratulations to DZone MVB Matt Raible and his wife, Trish!

Name That Programming Language!
I like the idea for this game.  It’s a little poorly executed, though.  It took me several minutes to figure out how to use it.  After you forfeit, you just have to refresh.

NERDY

Elon Musk is Tony Stark/Iron Man
After seeing the motion sensing interface that Tony Stark uses in the Iron Man movies, Elon musk created his own.  Doesn’t surprise me.

Arduino for JavaScript
The Espruino microcontroller has already beaten its KickStarter fundraising goal with plenty of time to spare.  Check it out and contribute if you want one!
