My ultimate list of programming blogs you should follow today



When I look back in the past, I see many excellent programming blogs I have followed for years.
Some of them are not active today and some have just changed their focus of writing to other things that are not so interesting to me.

So I decided to create up-to date list of my favorite programming blogs based on quality of blog posts and blogger activity in last 2-3 years.

  • Nice list.Thanks. 🙂
    But Why ScottGu’s Blog is not there ? 🙁
    http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu

    • Sampath thanks for comment.
      ScottGu is legend however he lately publishes only one post per month and less not too much programming related so I decided to skip him from my list.

  • Koja si ti legenda!

  • Not one blogger of these is a professional PHP blogger. Most are Microsoft bloggers. Any good PHP blogger that you recommend?

    • Thanks for comment. I am not following PHP community a lot. Actually I only do WordPress from time to time.
      So I can only recommend WPBegginer as WordPress blog.

      Feel free to suggest some good PHP bloggers.

  • Dude where is Martin Fowler; Greg Young and Eric Lippert? You are missing some heavy weights. That said its a good list.

    • Hey Stephen. I have just forgot to include those 3.
      Actually it is very hard to cover all valuable bloggers so your comment is much appreciated.

  • Krishna

    Helpful…!! I found one on Data Structures and Algorithms… theoryofprogramming.wordpress.com …. Happy Coding…! 🙂

  • I recently launched Unexpected Token: https://medium.com/unexpected-token on Medium where CTOs from startups share their experience and knowledge. It’s not focused on a specific technology and has great pieces on either programming challenges or sometimes management/strategy/recruitment. (full disclosure: it’s powered by my company eFounders – startup studio) – I’d love to get your feedback!

  • thanks for the list
