Monthly JSter #8: News of October 2013

Okay guys. We're going to try something a little different here. On average we tweet around three times per day at @jsterlibs. Roughly that means 90 links or so per month. That's a lot to click through.

As a result I'm trying out something a little different here. How would a bi-weekly publishing schedule sound? Then it's 45 links and I have time to include some commentary and there's less to click through. Everybody wins!

Remember that Monthly JSter is available as a newsletter. Our RSS feed contains some occasional extra content including interviews.
