hi DevRel Weekly family. 🤗 Apologies for the long delay in issues -- it's been a chaotic few weeks since I got back from Burning Man. Let me catch you up on a few things...
I got married 🥰
I got COVID
We officially hosted our first CamundaCon in North America, which was a huge success 🥳
I returned home, only to get sick again 🤧
Twitter officially closed down their free API access, which took down Zapier integrations as well 😵
Lastly, Raindrop.io (which I use to collect all my links) stopped maintaining its Zapier integration 😩
Given that Zapier is what I use to create RSS feeds from all of the Twitter searches & accounts I pull info from, these last two items have been a huge blow to my workflows. It's already been difficult to find all of the appropriate links with the changes in social media platforms lately, but these recent developments have made it nearly impossible to pull the information I'm looking for in order to create a helpful newsletter. While I love curating DevRel Weekly and have genuinely enjoyed the quest for information over the past 5 (almost 6!) years, it's time for this chapter to end.
That's not to say I won't ever use this space to share content, or that I'll stop providing other resources. In fact, it may free up my time and mental energy to create additional resources in the future! So if you're willing to stick around, please do! It just may be more "DevRel Thoughts Shared Randomly" and less about the "Weekly" cadence in the future. 😉
To all of you who have been here from the beginning, your support has meant the world to me! Thanks for the ideas, the feedback, and the constant stream of content to pull from. I can't wait to see what you do next!
It wouldn't be right for me to close things out without sharing a few of the best links I've come across throughout the chaos of the last few months. Without further ado... here are some of my favorites.
