the feeds I read

[cross-posted from my web site.]

My colleague Eric asked me how I keep up on development trends, so I
made this list of the main RSS feeds I follow (with Feedly/gReader).


  • Vue.js News, because I'm just really into Vue. Also available as a podcast. Friends, I read it and I listen to it. That's how into Vue I am.
  • JavaScript Weekly is a big (but not too big) list of links every week: articles, announcements, tools, tutorials, and job ads.
  • The Changelog covers open source generally. I don't read as many links from here, but it helps me keep tabs on what the wider developer community is talking about. This is the reason I know I should probably know what Kubernetes is.
  • I wasn't subscribed to CSS Tricks until I made this list, but I seemed to wind up reading a lot of articles from there anyway, so now I am.
  • Also I just found Web Platform News and it looks useful.


  • A List Apart is more design-focused than my other reads, and it goes both deep and wide – like this is where I read last week about how to support users with vestibular disorders.
  • Sandi Metz hasn't published a blog post in over a year, but I'm still subscribed because I know when she does it'll be worth reading and then thinking about until the next one.
  • Avdi Grimm, like Sandi, is just a smart person who thinks a lot about how to write better software, or write software better. And then, lucky for us, he shares his thoughts.

Also I'm here, of course, and I follow a bunch of people on Twitter, but that's for another day. What do you read?

FrontEnd Focus is another really good one too!

Oh, nice – from the creator(s) of JS Weekly, but less JS and more the other stuff. This might actually be more up my current alley. ... or do I need both?

I currently subscribe to both they have different content which is nice.

Classic DEV Post from 2020:

🚀⚙️ JavaScript Visualized: the JavaScript Engine

As JavaScript devs, we usually don't have to deal with compilers ourselves. However, it's definitely good to know the basics of the JavaScript engine and see how it handles our human-friendly JS code, and turns it into something machines understand! 🥳

Happy coding!
