Happy new year! I can’t believe we’re in 2022. We did it, folks!
Alright, another week, another newsletter. Let’s get to it!

Around the Web
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.

I've enjoyed listening to the StaffEng podcast by @voidfiles and @davidnoelromas. Today was the last episode. Thanks so much for all the great guests and conversations.

Also, how was I not following both of you? 🙃
If you’re a frontend dev, I encourage you to give this a watch. Dan was great in this mock interview.

The swyx mixtape has been one of my favourite podcasts of 2021. Well, it’s not a podcast in the traditional sense. As Shawn calls it, “A daily audio lootbox”. Here’s one of the last one’s I gave a listen to in 2021.

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.

Words of Wisdom for the Week
I put two in here because I skipped last week’s newsletter because Christmas.
Scott Hanselman
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.
Addy Osmani
Becoming a good engineer is about collecting experience. Each project, even small ones, is a chance to add new techniques and tools to your toolbox.

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.
