Last week I had a call with Quincy Larson of freeCodeCamp (to be onboarded as an author).
I’m a massive fan of the work he’s done with limited resources, we got to chatting and realised that we’re both trying to solve the “content is out there but not in the right format” problem.
He showed me his newsletter template, and I’ve shamelessly decided to copy it. It goes as follows:

The Tweet of the week is a quick back of the math envelope by Pete (from nocsdegree.com) on Wes Bos’ latest course launch.
This week I picked up The Unicorn Project by Gene Kim. For those familiar with The Phoenix Project, it’s a similar setup: fiction that imitates life in a technology organisation. Where “The Phoenix Project” follows an Ops -> DevOps transformation, “The Unicorn Project” is a development -> DevOps transformation. I really enjoyed both of them, I finished “The Unicorn Project” in 2-3 sittings, it’s that good.
