Console Devtools Newsletter
Console started in early-2021 as a weekly newsletter for experienced developers to discover the best tools and beta releases. Now at 28k subscribers, 77% with >5 years coding experience, we continue to review the best developer tools, track the latest beta and early access releases, profile interesting companies, interview technical experts on our podcast, and connect our audience to the people behind the code.
We pride ourselves on being transparent in our editorial approach and have strict selection criteria for everything we review. All potential partners who wish to sponsor a review must meet our selection criteria before we will work with them. Partners are able to choose the date of their review, which will appear first in the newsletter, but they do not get to influence or even read the review before it is published.
Our CEO, David, is an active angel investor in early-stage startups where developers are the primary user. If we'd recommend it to the developers subscribed to the newsletter, we'd also consider investing.
Most of our investments are in the US, but we have >30 investments all over the world.
