A few of the developers I work with asked me for recommendations on where to go to continue learning things in software development to hone your craft or just stay up with new things in the industry. So I put together some of my favorite resources here. Most of these are geared towards backend and distributed / cloud systems. I’d be happy to hear from you if you have some recommendations as well.
