What's your favorite (dev) newsletter?

I really love getting real mail. On paper, in my mailbox. (Although as a grownup 'real' mail is mostly even a bit too 'real'🙄 )

What I don't love so much are e-mails - there are too many, much of the content is too spammy and no, I don't want to buy your magic pills, thank you.

I want to change that, though - I'm in need of some fun in my inbox, something to look forward to, something to learn.

That's why I'm looking for your all-time favourite newsletters. Ideally (but not exclusively) with a tech focus.

I'll go first:

My absolute favourite newsletter is the one by Stefan Judis - in my opinion, it's the perfect mix of new tools, accessibility insights, real-life examples and good music (you can sign up here).

What's your favourite newsletter? And why? Any tips appreciated 🙏

Hard same about the DO acquisition. :/ Robin did such a great job with the CSS-Tricks newsletter.
