Taking one step forward

Learning is an unending process. The era we live in carries a plethora of resources to grab those learning opportunities—a major one is the ‘Internet’.

If you’re working for a company, you might be learning from your peers, seniors, & colleagues. This is important to hone your skills, especially in software engineering where things are evolving every day. And as the metaphor goes, Standing on the shoulders of giants, is completely true, and so does this quote, ”If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place“.

So, let’s take one step forward, and I’ll share a list of newsletter subscriptions, which I have had been reading for a while. These newsletters are mostly focused on front-end (JavaScript, CSS, HTML, and Accessibility) topics but also cover UX, Usability, and Design.

Overall great freebie packages, written by industry professionals, which get delivered to you while you sleep in the night 🛌. Let’s get started.


1. CSS, HTML

2. JavaScript

3. Accessibility, UX, Design

4. React

5. Node

6. GraphQL

7. Web Dev & Tips

8. Career Growth

  • Human Who Codes
    • About: intended for web application engineers who want to grow their career; covers JS, web dev, leadership, architecture, teamwork
    • Frequency: every other Tuesday of the month
    • By: Nicholas C.Zakas

Conclusion

Subscribing to these newsletters is half the battle won. You need to schedule a plan to read them on regular basis, otherwise, these emails may start to feel overwhelming. In your inbox, you can also filter and label them accordingly based on the category I showed you above. And then pick one or two specific topics to read on a regular interval. It’s about putting in small efforts and being consistent.

If you work for a company, you can share these new updates in a brown bag, or knowledge-sharing sessions. Soon you’ll realize how far have you come.

Thanks for reading, and do share this list with others so that they can join you on riding the giants. Good luck 🙂.
