How I keep myself up-to-date

13 February 23



One of my main sources are newsletters. I’m both subscribed to some 👨🏻‍💻 development related newsletters and some 📈 productivity focused newsletters.

Let’s 👊🏻 kick things off with all development related ones:

A very entertaining newsletter with good stories, delivered every Monday and Thursday, to stay informed on the JavaScript ecosystem.

React Status

A weekly roundup of the latest React and React Native links and tutorials.

Frontend focus

A once–weekly roundup of the best front-end news, articles and tutorials. HTML, CSS, WebGL, Canvas, browser tech, and more.

Javascript Weekly

A newsletter of JavaScript articles, news and cool projects.

Node Weekly

A weekly newsletter about the latest changes in the Node.js community.

Deno News

Although I have not played around with Deno that much, I still find it useful to get updates on a regular basis about this JavaScript runtime. This is the official newsletter by the Deno team, with articles, news and cool projects.

A free weekly email digest of the best tools and beta releases for developers.


Productivity is an important part of success and growth. These newsletter allows me to learn new techniques and strategies to help me be more productive.

Snail Mail by Slow Growth

A weekly list by Matt D’Avella of original articles focused on self-development.

Sunday Snippets

An email every Sunday by another YouTuber (Ali Abdaal) containing actionable productivity tips, practical life advice, and high-quality insights from across the web.


A podcast bij Wes Bos and Scott Tolinski where they talk about trends from the web.

JS party

A weekly celebration of JavaScript and the web.


Theo - t3․gg

Since I love working with the T3 (THEO) stack, I follow its creator on YouTube. He shares some really interesting thought on React, TypeScript and web development in general. For me it’s interesting to watch since I share a lot of the same opinion as Theo.


Talks about a lot about Rust and JavaScript, but make sure to check his videos on vim to learn the more about this editor.

Web Dev Simplified

Web Dev Simplified makes videos about advanced topics in web development using the latest best practices.


There have not been many updates to this channel in the last months, but it tells some interesting stories about the JavaScript ecosystem, like The Story of React

Jack Herrington

Jack Herrington is most known for creating educational videos on YouTube about web development, with some deep-dive videos into advanced React concepts.


They produce documentaries exploring tech culture, influential technologies and untold developer stories from around the world. I really enjoyed their documentaries on ReactJS, GraphQL and VueJS.

Matt D'Avella

When saying the words minimalism, productivity and YouTube in a sentence, lots of people will think of one name: Matt D’Avella. I love his content on YouTube, especially his 30-day experiments (like when he used a dump phone for 30 days).
