I’ve become more curious about web3 and have started to build out decentralized apps (dApps) to ramp up in this space via a great community called Buildspace.
Here’s a couple of posts about the dApps I’ve created recently.

We had a couple of great guests the past two weeks on the DEV Twitch stream. First up, we had Jonathan Creamer from Microsoft. We discussed frontend infrastructure, open source, and a term he coined, divops.
This week we had Will Johnson on the stream. We talked about dev rel, content creation, Framer Motion, Will’s new course on Framer Motion, and RenderATL and all the satellite projects associated with it.
Thanks to both of you for joining us!

Coming up this week, we have the amazing Stephanie Eckles joining us on the DEV Twitch stream! Come by and say hi at 5 pm UTC on Wednesday, November 3rd!
And lastly, if you’re a fan of VS Code, I started a community a little while back that builds off a Twitter community I started a few years ago.
Come by and say hi!
Until the next issue!
Did you enjoy this issue? Yes No

Yes, it’s yet another newsletter folks! I post stuff in Slack and other communities I’m a part of, so instead of losing all those links to the “Slack”hole, I decided to start a newsletter!

So welcome to links to cool and interesting stuff I found on the Internet during the week, with some fun stuff too, and shameless plugs.
