Mailing List Madness!

I am subscribed to a lot, and I do mean "a LOT" of mailing lists. If I find something even vaguely interesting, I will hit that subscribe button and giggle when I think of my future self trying to figure out why she's getting emails from a guy who specializes in fish taxidermy. (Actual content of newsletter replaced with something far less embarrassing.)

As a result, I have an approximate knowledge of many links that are useful to share with other people!

A developer friend of mine asked me recently for a list of newsletters I subscribe to so I thought I'd make this post a resource to share with everyone!

Great post! Thanks for sharing these and making this resource. I too sign up for lots of newsletters. I signed up for TLDR and then looked at my inbox full of unread newsletters, haha. I have had to teach myself it is okay to not read them all and that it is okay because I can't do it all. :)
A couple I have enjoyed recently themed for Developer Relations are DevRel Weekly and Developer Avocados.

Of course! I’m happy to share knowledge of cool things. Developer Relations is super exciting to me. It’s awesome to see a role where one gets to talk to developers about how they work and try to find ways to improve that.
