As a reminder for all our cultured readers, today is National Slurpee Day so make sure you take advantage.
This week, we’ve got hot cross buns, a new Shrek getting chosen, and how to apply The Secret’s Law of Attraction to your CSS. Welcome to #108.
My runtime don’t want none unless you got Bun, hun.
Sun’s Out Bun’s Out
That’s a lot already, but it’s only half the fun. Let’s zoom in on why Bun is able to be so mind-numbingly fast:
Bottom Line: The only thing moving faster than the Bun runtime is the Bun hype train — the GH repo went from 1,700 stars to over 13,000 in the first 24 hours of last week’s v0.1.0 beta release. And it doesn’t look like it’s slowing down any time soon.
Laughing about building notifications so we don’t cry [sponsored]
Courier gave my team so much time for activities
Newton’s 3rd law of motion clearly states that, “building app notifications always takes 5x longer than you think.”
And that might be understating it now that we have so many different platforms to worry about (email, SMS, web and mobile push, Slack, and tons more).
That’s what makes Courier so amazing. They give you complete notification infrastructure with one API that you can set up in an afternoon.
That API integrates with over 50 notification channels, and it handles everything — templating, routing, automations, even logging and analytics. It’s your PM’s *wildest* dream come true.
Courier is used by Fortune 500 companies and startups like Lattice and LaunchDarkly to save an average of 480 engineering hours a year. That’s a lot more time for
The best part? Courier lets you send your first 10,000 notifications of every month for free (no credit card required).

This is the first ever newsletter that I open a music playlist for and maximize my browser window just to read it in peace. Kudos to @uidotdev for great weekly content.
The Bytes newsletter is a work of art! It’s the only dev newsletter I’m subscribed too. They somehow take semi boring stuff and infuse it with just the right amount of comedy to make you chuckle.
Bytes has been my favorite newsletter since its inception. It’s my favorite thing I look forward to on Mondays. Goes great with a hot cup of coffee!
I subscribe to A LOT of dev (especially JS/TS/Node) newsletters and Bytes by @uidotdev is always such a welcomed, enjoyable change of pace to most (funny, lighthearted, etc) but still comprehensive/useful.
Literally the only newsletter I’m waiting for every week.
Bytes is the developer newsletter I most look forward to each week. Great balance of content and context! Thanks @uidotdev.
The sense of humor and structure of the Bytes Newsletter is first class and the information that comes with it is enough to make a mini course.
Very few newsletters manage to be useful and not very boring. @uidotdev manages to achieve these pretty effortlessly. You can almost see Tyler chuckle as he writes them.
