Another week, another newsletter. Let’s get to it!

Around the Web
Cloudlflare has been doing a lot of amazing stuff and of course, they wrote about it!
In 2021, we had seven Cloudflare Innovation Weeks. In this blog post, we are reflecting back on the highlights from each of these weeks. What was your favorite?

Shameless plugs
We’ve got Jenn Schiffer, Director of Community at Glitch joning us this week on the DEV Twitch stream. Come by and say hi!
I mentioned up top all the cool stuff that Cloudflare has been doing. And guess what? I’m going to be hanging with Sunil Pai, from Cloudflare, on the DEV Twitch stream January 26th.

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.
