I’m sad the StaffEng podcast ended on December 28, 2021, but it was a good run. Thanks to Alex and David for this gem. I encourage you to give all episodes a listen if you’re looking to level up in your career. I know I’ll be relistening to all the episodes.

There’s lots of Jam
SSG, SSR, DPR/ISR/DSG? Rendering in the Jamstack has gotten a little confusing (and a little heavy on the acronyms). In this article, I aim to help clarify what each are and when to use them. https://t.co/8uQm9mBhFN— Brian Rinaldi (@remotesynth) December 15, 2021
I’m sure some folks are starting to get or are sick of superhero films, but I’m so excited for these Marvel projects coming out in 2022

I put two in here because I skipped last week’s newsletter because Christmas.
Yep. Don’t put energy into things you don’t want more of. Answering email means you’ll get more email. It’s ok to say No. Don’t let your inbox turn into their todo list. You’ll drown. https://t.co/2n4AqZLOe3— Scott Hanselman (@shanselman) December 30, 2021
