Creating software isn’t that easy. There is a ton of things to consider. The more you actually create, the more you’ll learn.
And since there are many developers out there who share their experience, it’s a hard game to follow all of them. Because of this, we collected the following blogs and present you a list of 11 web development blogs worth reading.
Be on top of the web development game
In order to stay up-to-date on the latest web development trends, we put our heads together and curated this list of what we believe are the 11 best web development blogs you should be reading right now.
1. Six Revisions
I wouldn’t call Six Revisions a classical web development blog anymore, rather than a major news site for developers. Six Revisions publishes practical and useful articles for web developers and designers as well. Articles are published on a regular basis every 2-5 days.
2. Specky Boy
The Specky Boy blog calls itself a design magazine. Paul Andrew – the publisher of Specky Bloy – not only focuses on design resources but also provides useful insights on the latest web technologies. Especially for front-end developers, the blog is definitely a great source for staying up-to-date.
WebResourcesDepot is a great web development blog offering new posts every day. Developers will definitely find some great content here. It’s definitely a blog to follow.
I guess OXP is more a web design blog rather than a web development blog. Nevertheless, it provides some really useful articles in the field of development too. Whether it’s an article about some useful HTML5 tips or a new jQuery library. You’ll definitely get some inspiring content.
7. Stoyan’s phpied.com
A great blog worth mentioning is the personal blog from Stoyan Stefanov, who’s a Facebook engineer and the author of some really great books! It’s one of the best places to discover new articles, tools & frameworks.
8. Coding Horror
Coding Horror is a great blog resource from Jeff Atwood. It offers great insights on the development of software engineering. You’ll get loads of great tips and resources from Jeff sharing his experiences.
9. Alex Sexton
10. Paul Irish
As a developer, Paul is well-known for creating tools that improve workflows and make life easier for other developers. He’s currently working on Google Chrome DevTools at Google. You can gather useful insights on his personal blog where he regularly publishes web dev related articles.
