Greetings and a warm welcome to the second edition of Astro Weekly!
The reception to the launch issue exceeded all expectations, so a huge thank you to everyone who played a part in spreading the word.
For those just joining, why not catch up on the first issue? Now, without further ado, let's dive into this week's updates!
This week in Astro ✨
Four talks from Astro? Four? That’s insane!
Astro @ ViteConf 2023 ⚡️
Team Astro joined the stellar lineup of speakers at ViteConf last week, participating in talks alongside other amazing projects within the Vite ecosystem.
For those who missed it live, all the talks are available for replay online!
If you’re just interested in jumping straight to the Astro goodness, I’ve got you covered with timestamps below:
Introducing Volar, a common framework for language tooling — Erika Moreau
Stop writing docs; Start helping — Sarah Rainsberger
View Transitions: Fact vs. Fiction — Fred Schott
Community Panel — w/ Sarah Rainsberger
Coffee Chat ☕️
Grab a coffee
But wait, there’s more! If four talks from ViteConf didn't fill up your watchlist for the week, Astro Co-Creator Matthew Phillips joined Jan-Niklas Wortmann of JetBrains for a live stream to discuss all things Astro 3.0.

Notion + Astro 📝
Michael Jolley has published a great written breakdown of integrating a Notion database with an Astro site.
It covers everything you need to know from getting started with the Notion API to using Notion data in your Astro components.
Roll your own analytics with Astro 📊
Living on the Edge
Ever wondered how to roll your own version of Google Analytics using Astro, Vercel Edge Functions, and Neon? Of course, you have.
Paul Scanlon, Developer Advocate at Neon, is on hand to explain the whole process, with some really nice data visualisations thrown in for good measure.

The 90s were a vibe
Take a trip down memory lane with Yonic Corner.
This rather unique blog oozes nostalgia, with animated GIFs, table layouts, and text marquees, all while running perfectly on Internet Explorer 5.5 for Windows and Classilla for Mac OS 9. Now who said Astro was for the modern web?
Beyond the Astrosphere 🪐
