Hope your week has been nice and jazzy so far.
My next blog post might come later than I’d anticipated. A lot of things got in the way that kept me from writing it (people are right; job hunting is a full-time job 😢). Hopefully I can get to it soon!
I’ve also been thinking about ways to make this newsletter more valuable. I’ve already been trying some stuff like talking about how I’m doing for the past week as some kind of exclusive, and the weekly discussion posts.
I might try some other stuff in the coming weeks, like sharing more obscure articles, like the things I read on dev.to. Hope you look forward to it! ✨
I’ve most definitely been learning a lot from blogging and writing this newsletter. Meeting new people is also always a plus! Perhaps I could write an article about it one day. Generally, it’s been a valuable experience so far. Thanks to everyone for following my journey. 💖
And now, onto the newsletter!
Booklets.io makes little snippets to learn from books and professionals. Bite-sized learning, as they call it!
I’ve found that the booklets are mainly focused on designers and freelancers (although they also talk about a lot of other topics). I don’t think it hurts to know a bit of design as a developer, though! It helps you make a better bridge between yourself and the design team.
By the way, I’ve bookmarked exactly 214 booklets (out of the 668 they have) and have been reading every single one of them. I’ll be planning to write a review of booklets.io once I’ve read all of them, as well as sharing some of my favourite booklets. It might take a while before I get there though. 😆 But in the meantime, here’s already one of my favourites.
I know, I know! Earth Day has already passed and I should’ve asked this last week. I only realised after I’d posted last week’s discussion post that this topic would have been very relevant to that day. Still, this is worth talking about!
Here are the questions:
Feel free to answer the questions by leaving a comment on my dev.to post or simply by replying to this email!
That’s it for this week! Hope you enjoyed this newsletter. If there’s any feedback you have for me, feel free to send me an email!
Stay funky and don’t stop coding!
