Software Engineering Blogs I Read

| Comments

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.

http://techblog.netflix.com – Netflix has one of the best blogs. They always post very interesting articles explaining their architectural decisions in depth.

http://martinfowler.com – another must read, Martin Fowler. I don’t think he needs introduction :)

https://aphyr.com/posts – 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).

http://highscalability.com – lots of “real life architectures” – reviews that explain modern scalable architectures from different companies, from startups to enterprises.

https://github.com/blog/ – less actual engineering, but it’s important to be informed about new GitHub features, right?

http://nerds.airbnb.com – AirBnB shares interesting details about problems they solve.

https://codeascraft.com – the same from Etsy, their Performance Reports series is pretty unique.

https://eng.uber.com – insights from Uber, always in detail.

https://www.paypal-engineering.com – diverse topics from PayPal.

http://code.hootsuite.com – another really diverse blog from HootSuite: JVM, DevOps, front-end, etc.

http://engineering.khanacademy.org – really great content, sometimes not about engineering at all, but take a look!

https://aws.amazon.com/new/ – must have stream of updates if you use Amazon Web Services.

http://www.cakesolutions.net/teamblogs – good DevOps and Scala content, weekly digests!

http://blog.akka.io – obviously useful only if you use Akka ;–) or planning to.

As a bonus a few great personal blogs:
