GitHub’s New Treats from GH Universe
’90s Nickelodeon hit different
GitHub Universe happened last week — and yes, we heard about dark mode 🌛.
When we first saw the announcement video, we thought it might be live footage of GitHub being baptized into the Church of Satan. But since GH was acquired by Microsoft back in 2018, we assumed that ceremony had already happened a long time ago.
Jokes aside, we are excited for coding in the dark to be even more… dark.
Here’s a quick rundown of our other favorite new GH features.
Other fun new features include a native iPad app, a major release of GH Enterprise Server, a new dependency review tool, the ability for companies to participate in GH Sponsors, and

React Query v3 was just released… literally this morning. So here we are, furiously writing about it to bring you all the latest info. Heavy is the head that wears the crown.
Quick Review: React Query is a Hooks library for fetching, caching, and updating server state in React. Some people have called it “the missing data-fetching library for React” (and by “some people”, we mean Tanner). Others have called it “a way to never have to use
What’s new in RQ 3?
A lot. So much we’re going to break our own rule and just copy/pasta from the announcement tweet.
You can check out all the changes in the Migration Guide. And you’ll have a lot more fun reading it if you play The Official React Query Documentation Drinking Game™ — drink every time you see the word “cache” in the docs. GLHF.
The Bottom Line
There’s an ever-expanding smorgasbord of React server state solutions, but React Query seems to be leading the charge.

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.
