Dev Letters: TMZ for Developers

Some of the most useful and lasting content has come from letters between colleagues. In this tradition, I
will post some developer insight that’s shared between myself and other developers.


You’ve sent out some good stuff lately [on our JavaScript DL]. What’s your source? Is there a site I can check daily—a TMZ for developers?


  1. I’ve decided to share even when I’m really “in the zone”, whereas previously I shared when I was bored
  2. I make liberal use of IFTTT. I let the computers monitor the web and ping me when something “interesting” happens. E.g. I have Facebook’s Github profile monitored for new repos
  3. I listen to the “5 Minutes of JavaScript” podcast. 3/4 of their content is too junior, but the 1/4 that’s not is worth it
