For years I used Unroll.me to manage my email newsletters and tuck them away so I don't see them, and with the advent of Gmail's Promotions tab, I got even less noise every week. Still, I really wanted to stop getting most of these altogether. And it seems like I'm not the only one on DEV.to making this effort lately:
There are a handful of newsletters that I do actually read every week, and I wanted to share my "never unsubscribed" lists!
Juniors in Tech: Keziyah has built Juniors in Tech into such a valuable resource, whether it's the newsletter (FILLED with articles for beginners and mid-level employees both), or the website with its job board, it's clear that she wants to be a resource to help newbies learn and grow.
Diversify Tech: @venikunche 's newsletter is invaluable for many of the same reasons as Juniors in Tech, with a broader experience set. She's also a fantastic follow on DEV or Twitter - I've learned a lot from her.
Developer Avocados: This curated reading list also includes CFPs and upcoming conference info. I continue to be very interested in advocacy the more I learn about it, and it's really great to have hand-picked articles to further knowledge on it!
Codepen Spark: More examples of fun, creative code projects!
As far as non-tech newsletters, I look forward to Girls Night In every week, but I've unsubscribed from all the other "lifestyle"-type newsletters. For writing, I've been getting Reedsy's Friday challenge prompts for a few years. I've only submitted pieces twice, but I really enjoy having a cache of writing prompts to reference if I feel inspired to write but have a block.
There are a lot of people who love both JS and UX/CSS. If we stop labeling people just as “JS developers” or “UX developers”, we can achieve a ceasefire in the current “JS vs. CSS” war and achieve a mutually benefiting peace.
