technologies, services, and places to work that matter, and focus on what they
do best. Building.
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 26k+
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.
In addition to helping developers find the best tools, we profile
how the most interesting companies run their engineering teams. We believe that
the best developers rarely look for a new job, but they may be tempted by
particularly interesting opportunities. This is where Jobs
Console comes in - a devtools specific jobs board,
with interesting jobs featured in the newsletter each week.
