Last month on Glitch was weird and wonderful, let's blog about it! ✍️

Happy February! I know that January is the start of the year, but for me it’s always February that feels like a fresh beginning - it’s both my birth and Glitch anniversary month, and that’s why I look for any way to make everything about the things I enjoy. That’s why the prompt for this month’s Glitch Community Code Jam is “welcome to my blog.” I love blogs - always have, always will, and the turbulence that social media is going through is lending itself to a sort of renaissance of blogging. This is just to say, I want to read your blogs OR I want you to start one if you haven’t already AND you should submit them to our jam.

Before you scroll to see some very cool blog posts and projects, I want to remind you all that February 28th is our deprecation date for versions of Node < 12, and this week we’re removing Chromium from containers. All of this is in service of getting Glitch up to date - and to combat activities making it difficult for the community to create cool stuff.

See you on

Jenn, Director of Community and blog enthusiast 👽

P.S. Fastly is running a developer meetup in our new NYC space on February 27th - if you’re in the area, we’d love for you to join us for an evening of refreshments, activities and conversations about computing at the edge. It’s also a good opportunity to get some Glitch stickers that I’ve been hoarding at my desk! Save yourself a spot for this free event before they run out.

On the blogs ✍️

If you loved Last Year on Glitch, you’ll love our monthly roundups, with this year starting off hot with the Last Month on Glitch, January edition. This issue includes:

  • A browser for…toasters
  • Most flavors of Mountain Dew
  • Slime (or goo)
  • Lots of geographic trivia

…and so much more! Check it out for yourself and be sure to add our blog to your RSS feed readers which I know you have if you’re a sicko like me.

Here are some blog posts (and a podcast!) from the community that we loved!

Have you written about your Glitch apps on a blog, a conference talk…anywhere? Let us know and we’ll feature it in the next newsletter!
