I made this because I collect those links but for myself. I think why not share it with the world.
I plan to separate them into sections such as "Code to read", "Video to watch", "Article to read" etc...
The code is 100% open source: https://github.com/yeospace/better-dev.link (Thoguh lack of document and cleanup right now)
I attempt to collect links that isn't the thing we can just google to do it but the links that add new value to help improve my knowledge.
HN has lots of other stuff. High Scalability is good as well. But having them all in same email every monday during commute to read is what drive me to do this.
Feedly + Pocket is made for this sort of content.
I user to subscribe to Hacker News Daily Digest for this purpose.
But my list are also include other thing, not just Hacker News.
I tried to collect links that you will not be able to answer with a google search. Let's say I'll not include the article such as: "How to build an API with Elixir and MongoDB", "How to build a Rest API in GO",...etc. I attempt to bring the links that after reading you will get some more knowledge about a domain, other than a link about how to do a specific thing,...etc.
But I got your concern about why you have to give me your email. I plan to add Slack/Telegram/RSS channel next so you can subscribe to read content instead of receiving the email.
