👋 Node Weekly has become curiously more difficult to curate over the past year as the ecosystem seems to have reached a plateau of maturity with fewer random proposals, libraries, or noteworthy events. This has its pros and cons, but means I appreciate any submissions you send in (hit reply to do this!) 🙂
