Staying updated using newsletters
How I learn new things at my convenience
Thursday, November 25, 2021
Being in a fast-paced industry, we need to update our skills to stay relevant to perform our jobs better(to get a better salary). For me, having a short attention span is a challenge; one minute, I'm watching a YouTube tutorial, next, I'm watching random nonsense internet content. Therefore, I find subscribing to newsletters a concise way to learn new things without too many distractions.
Here are some on my list:
Stay up to date on the latest React news, tutorials, resources, and more. Delivered every Tuesday, for free.
Since developing React applications are my bread and butter, this is a must for me. If you're working on another language, there's likely a newsletter for that.
Just check this one. :D
By enabling a newsletter in your settings, you will receive a weekly newsletter of a list of development-related topics that you might find interesting. You even have the option to send a periodic digest of top posts related to tags you prefer.
Byte sized news for busy techies
TLDR is a daily newsletter with links and TLDRs of the most interesting stories in tech 📱, science 🚀, and coding 💻!
What I like about
TLDR is that it summarizes daily news so that I will not quickly get bored. If I want more details regarding specific information, I can check simply the link they provide.

Don't forget that we are humans(except for the bot crawling this page). To succeed as a developer, we need a balance of technical skills and soft skills. You don't want to behave like an animal during stand-up or become a keyboard warrior when addressing a Pull Request comment.
What do you think would be an excellent addition to the list?
