A Primary Resource for Staying Relevant as a Creative

Being a creative and staying up to date on the latest design trends, javascript libraries, frameworks, photoshop/sketch tip and tricks shouldn’t be stressful. While there’s a plethora of accessible information, there are some ways to help sift through the noise and allow you to access quality content.

When I took the Front-End Web Development course at General Assembly, the first thing my teacher said was to sign up for newsletters. These newsletters are curated articles sent to your inbox on a weekly basis, tailored to a specific vertical. They include updates on technology stacks, best practices, opinion pieces, tutorials, tips and tricks.

Here are a few that I personally use and recommend:
