I‘m writing the first issue of https://shophackers.news, a newsletter for creators who work in the e-commerce industry. I really want to take my time to make the first issue valuable.

What’s your experience with dev/design newsletters?
What do you like and what don’t you like?
Maybe somebody has experience with writing dev&design newsletters and can give a newbie some tips ?

I've only ever been on the receiving side of developer newsletters, but there are a few sections that stand out to me - industry news, job listings, and just for fun. Those first two sections come from a Android dev newsletter I was subscribed to awhile back. It always had sections for industry news (like google allowing Android apps to connect to wear os apps or kotlin got a version update) and job postings (I think for that one they had a link back to their site where the job listings were posted). The just for fun sections come from some other newsletters I get. They usually come in the form of a book/podcast suggestion or a cat video on twitter. All ideas to consider, as long as they align with the style and intended demographics of your newsletter.
