Hear me out. I have reason to believe Big Tech has established an over-leveraged short position in Backbone.js. If we all migrate to Backbone.js and refuse to ever migrate off, it’ll create a massive short squeeze on their tech debt that they won’t be able to recover from. #💎✋
Hot or Not? — ES2021 Edition
When you finally make it into the Spec
Quick review on TC39 process: Proposals go through a 5-stage process (numbered 0-4, because of course it is), with each stage requiring an additional level of approval and commitment from members of the TC39 committee. The amount of time required to clear all 5 stages can vary widely — some proposals are approved in months, others get stuck on one or more stages for years at time (kinda like a game of Phase 10 from hell).
We’ll run through all five new features and give each one a hotness rating on a scale of 1-5 🔥. Why? Because we’ve been watching too much Bachelor/Bachelorette in quarantine like everybody else.

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.
