This week we’re checking in on Deno, praying for faster type checking, and anthropomorphizing new icon libraries. Welcome to #85.

Checking in on Deno
Deno v1 was
Fast forward to today, and it turns out that Deno hasn’t killed off Node (despite what some thoughtfluencers on Twitter would have you believe). But even though there’s definitely less Deno buzz now than there was back in Summer 2020 (and more Covid WTF?), last year was still a big year for the Deno team:

Clerk.dev — user management, now with less pain!
There’s only one lesson I hope my kids learn from me: “the best code is the code that you don’t have to write/maintain.” (“Be a good person” was a close second place.)
So if any of my offspring ever builds an app, they better use Clerk.dev for all their user management garbage.
It also integrates super smoothly with React, Expo, Next, and Gatsby to save you even more time.
Your users don’t care how your user management system works — they just want it to work, so they can get busy losing money on NFTs, gambling on virtual horses, or whatever it is your app does.
👉 Check out Clerk.dev’s free tier and stop worrying about the boring code nobody cares about.
If you’re gonna drink, I’d rather you do it in the house
Type checking is finally getting an upgrade (we hope)
But TypeScript’s type checker,
The hard (and slow) part is checking the code for type errors. So far,
What makes this latest attempt any different?
Bottom Line: If they can pull this off, we should start a GoFundMe to pay for a Cameo of Jeff Goldblum saying his most iconic line.

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.
