Please note that, in order to keep this newsletter at an acceptable length, I am purging the sections “Useful links and articles” and “Developer resources” on a biweekly basis. Thus they are divided into the sections “past week” and “this week”. You can check out all of the past updates here.
Thank you for reading, and see you next week. ⏳
