About the Newsletter

The tobru.guru Newsletter is my personal Newsletter which is sent irregularly to interested people subscribed to it.

Throughout the day I read plenty of interesting articles, discover many new cool Open-Source tools or stumble upon something which caught my interest.

Topics currently range from Cloud Native technologies over IoT and sensors to embedded hardware. And of course, countless GitHub repos with cool Open-Source tools. This reflects my current interest and as that can change, the content can and will evolve.

The archive is a good way to get an impression of past issues.

If you find something which you feel should be included in an upcoming issue of the newsletter, just let me know on Mastodon or via E-Mail.

An RSS feed is available as well for those who prefer it this way.


I absolutely respect your privacy:

  • There is only tracking in E-Mails which are connected to this Ghost blog instance - no third-party tracking.
  • Everything is running on my private server hosted at Hetzner Cloud.
  • A self-hosted instance of Ghost with the member functionality is used for the website and Newsletter management.

E-Mail addresses are never shared with third-parties or sold, they reside on my server and are solely used to send the newsletter. E-Mails are sent via Mailgun and therefore Mailgun knows about the receiving mail address.

Please let me know if you have any concerns and I will improve!


I got inspired to write this newsletter by other people doing it, especially:

My sources to find all the interesting links are of course these newsletters, but also the Fediverse, Hackernews and research when I'm working or experimenting with technology.
