This week, I’ve decided the time has come to wrap up the weekly Dev Diner newsletter.
It has been an incredible run of 241 issues — that’s over 4 and a half years covering the emerging tech news of the week, every week! It all began on Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015… which feels like a lifetime ago. I’ve posted the newsletter from a bunch of different states, countries and timezones since then. Wrapping it up is a tough decision!
In the first newsletter, we were thinking about the HTC Vive release delays, looking into clues that Apple were planning on releasing their own AR headset (maybe 2021 we’ll finally see something released?), Niantic Labs was just spun off from Google (Pokemon Go wasn’t even a thing yet!) and we were hopeful that the first Hololens was coming later in the year. Just getting the Amazon Echo to have a non-US timezone was a challenge and the Google Home didn’t exist yet as a device!
A lot has changed in tech, and a lot is yet to come.
To everyone who has subscribed to receive these emails and shared in this journey with me, thank you.
I hope the newsletter has helped you keep track of the ever-changing world of emerging tech. I hope it has inspired you to see just how incredible the evolving times we live in truly are.
I’m not leaving the world of emerging tech in the slightest — I’ll be getting more hands on. I’ve decided it’s time that I build more, experiment more and share that journey. I’m still working out the finer details, but if you’d like to follow along with what comes next:
