The Top 7 Newsletters about Developer Community Building 

As a DevRel, community-driven founder, or technical community manager, you want to be up to date on the latest news, trends, tools, and resources about developer communities. Instead of searching for all the information yourself, use your time more efficiently and let somebody else do it. With a newsletter, you receive updates on events, job positions, product features or releases, etc. With all the different options available, finding the right newsletters can be challenging, so we have gathered our top picks here for you. 

1. DevRel Weekly
