Hey, I’m Anselm Hannemann and I curate this project.
It is an attempt to filter and concatenate all the web development links that pop up every single day.
The Web Development Reading List aims to filter these links for you so you stay up to date about the latest technologies and techniques but don’t need to read every link you find in the wild.


Everyone in the industry wants to stay up to date. I myself read a lot already and think it’s worth sharing so others can rely on my expertise and don’t need to research on their own.

Support and Donations

The project is financed entirely by your contributions.
This list is only possible because I love what I do. I have no advertising in my newsletter, no tracking and get financed by my readers who love what I do and find it worth a small donation. So if you want to support me, a donation is highly appreciated! ♥

Insights Into The Selection Process

“I subscribe to a lot of dev newsletters, but this one is my fave. Expertly curated!”—Drew Lustro

I (Anselm) collect all the links coming up in my twitter stream, RSS feeds and other resources into a rough list. The first selection already happens after I read an article — if it’s well written and has valuable content it will go into the list.
You can imagine there is a load of good articles in just one week; it would be too much for a summary as the WDRL aims to be. A second review guarantees that only important articles and topics come up. Usually this results in about 15 links per week.
