Happy New Year to you all! While I loved the pace of new tools, services and innovations last year, things moved so fast in 2022 that I'm personally wishing for some time to catch up in 2023. On that note, one of the great ways to catch up each Jamuary is via this year's edition of TheJam.dev featuring two days of talks from great speakers. It's virtual and completely free. I'll be emceeing and hopefully I'll see you all there in less than two weeks!

❖ 2022's Top 5 Links

Thoughts On Markdown
The fact that this was the top link of 2022 surprises me, not because the post isn't deserving (it absolutely is) but because people generally seem to accept Markdown, warts and all, without much question.

Why I No Longer Use Static Site Generators
On the other hand, this post being second doesn't surprise me at all, especially given the title. This was definitely the most divisive link I included all year. I rarely hear from people upset about links but I definitely heard about this one.

Simon MacDonald

Remix vs Next.js
This post does a good job of comparing the two React metaframeworks, one that gained a strong following in 2022 (Remix) versus the established leader.

How To Choose A Headless CMS
Choosing a headless CMS continued to be an overwhelming task in 2022 and this is a really good post for laying out a number of criteria to evaluate without any bias towards a particular solution.
