A Framework for Brainstorming Talk Ideas - 🧑💻🥑📆 218
Developer Avocados 🥑 Weekly
Season's Greetings to all the Avocados in here! 🥑✨ As the year wraps up, we wanted to express our heartfelt gratitude for being here with us, for the past 5 years. Your support and feedback have been the only reasons we keep reading, curating and publishing this newsletter.
May your holidays be bug-free, your code compile seamlessly, and your New Year be filled with Hello Worlds. Happy coding and if you happen to write something during the holidays, send that our way, we’ll add it to the curation queue!
PS. As a show of appreciation, we’re doing a first and probably only year-end “sale” for the sponsored slots in the newsletter. If you’d like to sponsor now a slot per month for the whole of 2024, we’re giving out a 33% discount for subscribers. That’s if you haven’t spent all your 2023 budget yet 😂
