Versioning—a brilliant, daily newsletter about the web
One resource that I’ve been enjoying over the last few months is Versioning from Sitepoint. which describes itself as a “a social news site for kind web folk”.
At the heart of it, Versioning is a daily, curated newsletter packed with the latest news about all things web development and more. Generally it covers:
- Front end
- Back end
- Design / UX / Product
- News / business
- Everything else
When I signed up I worried that I might feel overwhelmed by so many resources being fired at me every day (Monday to Friday) but I’ve found it to be a tremendous resource and something that I look forward to reading each day.
While there are some clearly geeky and technical resources, there is also a lot for everyone else. For example, did you know that in April 2016 Google will be ending Chrome support for Windows XP, Vista and OS X 10.8? And how about this explanation of how DNS works in the style of a comic? Or an interview with JJ Abrams (director of the new Star Wars film) in Wired.com.
