For those that don’t know us, the Developer Economics newsletter is a fortnightly developer newsletter which focuses on resources, dev related news, jokes, inspirational quotes and events.
📰 Our newsletter has been running for a couple of years now. In the beginning we were purely focused on developer news. However, more recently, we’ve expanded to include resources & tools which have proved popular with our readers.
