Level Up

July 26 · Issue #50 · View online
Level Up delivers a curated newsletter for leaders in tech. A project by Ideal for busy people such as Tech Leads, Engineering Managers, VPs of Engineering, CTOs and more.

I’m taking time out this week ☀️😎. For me, this means I’m intentionally staying away from “work” topics like catching up on my daily/weekly reading of blogs, twitter, and other sources. But like any good leader, you plan to make sure things keep working without you, which means this edition of Level Up should still hit your inbox.
I wrote some scripts to generate statistics from past editions. So this edition is a recap, containing some of the most popular articles since Level Up first started 🎉.
I hope you enjoy this week’s content. If you find it useful, please forward to someone else and send me feedback. Stay safe and healthy 🙏
