Web Development Newsletters: JavaScript, React, Vue, Angular Email Newsletters

In this post, we’ll look at some of the best email newsletters centered around JavaScript and related frameworks. This article was born thanks to the following thread on Twitter, where people within the JavaScript community shared their favorite newsletters. If you’re interested in more than just JavaScript, but other languages and respective technologies, I’d advise you check out the following GitHub repo from Dmitry Zudochkin, who took his time to compile an excellent list of all possible web development email newsletters. Let’s get started.

The newsletter doesn’t seem to have its own twitter, but you can check JavaScript Daily’s twitter from the same publisher.

The JS Weekly newsletter has the latest articles on JavaScript, the list of advertised jobs available for JavaScript developers, featured tutorials and opinions shared by fellow programmers, and a selection of recommended tools.
