There’s a killer new guide to building for Mastodon and the Fediverse…

Hello and happy March, the month that weather folklore tells us “comes in like a lion and out like a lamb.” I imagine for those of you students reading this, the lion is midterms and the lamb is spring break. Anyway, Glitch won a DEVIES Award last month!

Also last month, we made a number of updates to our starters:

  • Eleventy starters have been updated to 2.0.0. By the way, congrats to them on 5 million downloads!
  • We’ve made our Website starter simpler in a number of ways. Other exciting community news is that Mastodon has joined Fastly’s Fast Forward program. We’re proud to be able to support them through this era of massive growth for them, just as we are proud to be able to support all of you trying to build a better web.

See you on!
Jenn, Director of Community 👽

P.S. Did you know we have a Fastly blog too? Follow us there for more developer blogs and let us know what you’re building and blogging! Speaking of blogging…
