Every good work of software starts by scratching a developer's personal itch
Eric S. Raymond ·
Wish you a very happy and a productive new year from all of us at Hashnode, and welcome to the very first newsletter of 2017.
We’ve a 2016 look back report to reminisce all the nostalgia, and the awesomeness that we came across the past year.
The best part of 2016 though, is you; who made and continue to make Hashnode ever awesome by being a part of it. We ❤️ you.
Say it with a tweet, if the feeling is mutual. 😃
Having said that, What’s on your checklist for 2017? Me? I’m looking forward to sharpening my Functional Programming concepts with Professor Frisby’s course.

best practices police, we already follow most of the 2017 NodeJS best practices.

That’s all folks… oh, before I forget we have been working on a new year’s gift for you all. Do tune into your inboxes the coming Wednesday 🗓 for the same.
Cheers,Sai from Hashnode
