The 2022 Roundup of Advent Calendars for Designers and Developers

Welcome everyone to the third roundup of advent calendars for designers and developers. The list is (mostly) the same as last year: some calendars are not running in 2022 and a few that took a break in 2021 are now back. Overall though we got another treasure trove of useful content to keep us busy and entertained until next year.

I'm going to update this list over the next week with any new entries that I can find, so be sure to come again later.
