Your ability to find, qualify, and digest development information is extremely important. Whether you are a new developer of a seasoned vet, you are always learning. You need to find information fast and effectively.
When you have a question, it is easy to type it into a search engine and find an answer. Sometimes, though, you don’t know what question to ask.
Enter development blogs. A steady stream of information, tips, tricks, tutorials and great open discussion. I subscribe to over 50 feeds from development blogs using Google Reader as my RSS reader of choice.
Besides “doing”, this is the best learning tool I have. I consistently read articles addressing problems I haven’t thought of yet. I find sample code I can stock pile now and use later. The Cocoa community is extremely helpful and talented.
Most developers carry their tedious attention to detail into their blog writing. This leads to infrequent, yet highly polished and information rich posts which are easily scoured in your feed reader.
So, what feeds do I read?
Below is the list of web sites of who I keep in Google Reader (in no particular order).
I’m sure I left out some, so let me know if you have any good blogs that should be on my list.
