RSS is not dead. At least not for me :) I use NewsBlur to track and read 50+ various feeds - tech, travel, personal blogs. Today I want to share a list of software engineering blogs that I find very helpful and keep in my list for a long time. - Netflix has one of the best blogs. They always post very interesting articles explaining their architectural decisions in depth. - another must read, Martin Fowler. I don’t think he needs introduction :) - distributed systems explained (and ruined). His Jepsen series is a great practical introduction to distributed computing and related problems. He proves that everything can be broken (well, except Zookeeper). - lots of “real life architectures” - reviews that explain modern scalable architectures from different companies, from startups to enterprises. - less actual engineering, but it’s important to be informed about new GitHub features, right? - AirBnB shares interesting details about problems they solve. - the same from Etsy, their Performance Reports series is pretty unique. - insights from Uber, always in detail. - diverse topics from PayPal. - another really diverse blog from HootSuite: JVM, DevOps, front-end, etc. - really great content, sometimes not about engineering at all, but take a look! - must have stream of updates if you use Amazon Web Services. - good DevOps and Scala content, weekly digests! - obviously useful only if you use Akka ;-) or planning to.

As a bonus a few great personal blogs:
