3 Blogs Coders Love

Blog Post created by daniperea on Oct 5, 2017

If you're looking to level up in your developer knowledge or to commiserate with other coders, we recommend giving one of these blogs a read. Do you have a favorite coder blog? Let us know in the comments!

 

1) CSS-Tricks

CSS-Tricks is a blog on all things web design and development, and true to their roots, it also provides many helpful tips and tricks on Cascading Style Sheets. It's run and written by Chris Coyier and a merry team of CSS enthusiasts.  I love it because of its readability, the sense of play in every post and because of the copious walkthroughs with code examples.  Plus it's so frequently updated, there's often new content a few times a day.

2) Women Who Code

Women who Code is a nonprofit with over 100,000 members who are tech professionals. You don't have to be a member to access their awesome blog, which is full of profiles of women developers and organizations advancing opportunities for women in tech; hackathon invites and meet-ups; career tips from advocating for your rights at work to becoming a better public speaker; conference recaps; and of course, coding advice. Their team of writers is fantastic and this might be one of the few places on the internet where reading the comments is a worthwhile endeavor. Come for the content, stay for the community.

3) Coding Horror

Coding Horror is both extremely hilarious and highly informative look at both code and coders.  The half-personal/half tech blog is written by Stack Overflow co-founder Jeff Atwood. With 13 years of posts accumulated on the blog, you'll find everything from well-researched and pithy posts on programming, to tips for both newbies and experts, to personal musings. One downside: Jeff is so busy, that months can go by without an update.
