Developers' Blogs

Blogs about the software development process, in many cases written by top programmers. (And if you’re looking for news, trends or tutorials, check out Developer.com.)

86) Scott Hanselman’s ComputerZen.com
A Microsoft staffer, Hanselman is a popular blogger whose tool list is considered a great resource. For instance, 2009 Ultimate Developer and Power Tool List for Windows Users.

87) Coding Horror
A veteran programmer, Jeff Atwood travels far afield across development and larger context tech issues. A great blog.

88) Joel on Software
Among developers’s blogs, Spolsky’s is a clear leader. A New York-based software developer who covers not only software but larger issues in technology, Spolsky is an excellent writer. Volunteers translate his posts into dozens of languages for his international audience.

89) Lambda the Ultimate
Focuses on programming languages and programming language research. Written by a full crew, this is heavy duty technical stuff.

90) Bokardo – Social Design by Joshua Porter
Interface design for the social Web – the Facebooks and Twitters of the world, but the idea is much larger – calls for its own expertise. That’s the bailiwick of Joshua Porter, who’s been at it for ten years.

91) UIE Brain Sparks
UIE – or “User Interface Engineering,” but you knew that – focuses Web site and product usability. It’s not enough to code it, the non-tech user has to be able to use it. Founder Jared Spool is the author of Web Usability: A Designer’s Guide.

92) DZone
Okay, this isn’t exactly a blog, it’s a social media site, sort a mega-blog created by legions of developers. Zillions of links to what’s happening now and plenty of spirited conversation.

93) Dr. Dobb’s Codetalk
Is there a development related topic not addressed by the crowd at Codetalk? Looks like they’re got it covered. Or you can go right to the Guru page.

94) Martin Fowler’s Bliki
Fowler specializes in enterprise software design and has written – count ‘em – five books on software development. Here’s his self-description: “I've been a pioneer of object-oriented technology, refactoring, patterns, agile methodologies, domain modeling, the Unified Modeling Language (UML), and Extreme Programming.” A well-respected blog.

95) Vacuous Virtuoso
Not a wordy blog, yet knowledgeable. A lot about Quicksilver, Mac issues, Web design, raps about the iPhone SDK: author Ankur Kothari can claim uber-geek status.

96) Jeremy Zawodny
Zawodny, once Yahoo’s MySQL guru and now a staffer at Craigslist, blogs about development, Perl, his aviation hobby, and assorted other tech topics. Smart stuff.

97) CodeBetter
Takes a mixed approach: it kooks at coding at the molecular level, down at the line-by-line level, but also offers some top level philosophical discussion. Posts by a small crowd of experts.

98) Microsoft’s Channel 9
This is Microsoft’s gathering spot for the vast network of Microsoft developers. Constant posting and constant discussion.

99) Jeremy D. Miller – The Shade Tree Developer
Some good, thoughtful writing: Miller, a .NET developer and software architect, discusses life as a programmer and the development process. Part of the popular Codebetter blog portal.

100) Craig Murphy: The Social Programmer
Based in Europe, Murphy offers complex geek coding stuff mixed in with thoughtful observations about development, with a handful of job listings in the mix.

101) Phil Haack: You’ve Been Hacked
A well-rounded developer, to be sure: by day, he’s a senior project manager at Microsoft, by night he leads the Subtext Project, an open source blog engine. At times he exhibits a wry sense of humor.

102) Jon Udell: Strategies for Internet Citizens
A developer and IT architect, Udell helped lay the groundwork for today’s social collaboration software. He’s currently working on a community information hub that runs in Microsoft’s Azure cloud.

103) James Gosling
The CTO of Sun’s Client Software Group and a well-respected figure in the tech community, Gosling writes about Java and the software business, with some interesting philosophizing about the larger world along the way.

104) Dave Thomas – Pragmatic Programmer
Thomas has authored books on programming (“Programming Ruby,” “Agile Web Development with Rails”) and blogs as an expert coder. Take a listen to his music he posts; some pretty stuff.

105) The Human Side of Software Development / Software by Rob
A developer and an entrepreneur, Rob Walling writes clearly and conversationally about starting your own small software business, or what he calls “becoming a micropreneur.” His popular posts include Expenses You Don’t Think of When Starting a Business and 8 Ways to Recession-Proof Your Programming Career and Self-Marketing for Software Devleopers.

106) GirlDeveloper
The irrepressible Sara Chipps is an ASP/NET/C#/SQL developer who philosophizes about the coding life with an upbeat, distinctly feminine bent. As she explains: “All marriage proposals must be accompanied by previous year’s W2.”

107) Dirk Riehle: Software Research and the Industry
Once leader of the open source research group at SAP Labs in Palo Alto, Riehle is Professor for Open Source Software at the University of Erlangen in Germany. He takes a thoughtful, intellectual approach to topics like Why Open Source is Hard for Closed Source Vendors.
