Blogs and Podcasts: How I stay on top of new stuff in the development world

I was asked the other day by a colleague how I keep up with everything going on in the software development world.  A lot of people use Twitter for this but so far for me I still find podcasts via my iPod and blogs via Google Reader and more recently Feedly to fit really well in my life.  Here is my list of each, edited down to just the techie items.  I am mostly a .NET webdeveloper so except where I mention otherwise that is where most of these focus.

Podcasts (in no particular order)

  • Hanselminutes: Scott Haselman's excellent geek interview show. 
  • Herding Code: Four smart and funny devs talk about software development, typically with guests.  
  • The Changelog: Open source software discussion show.  Mostly Linux focused but great show and entertaining.
  • .NET Rocks: Perhaps the original .NET developers podcast.  Still excellent.
  • This Developers Life: More about the culture of Geek than about tech.  I love this show.
  • Deep Fried Bytes: "Deep Fried Bytes is an audio talk show with a Southern flavor"
  • The Stack Exchange Podcast: Interesting discussion by the folks that run of rambling at times but entertaining and informative.
  • Yet Another Podcast: Hosted by Jesse Liberty (the guy who wrote the C# book with the big bird on it, so basically the guy who taught me how to code in C#).
  • The Tablet Show: Mobile developement show by the guys that do the .NET Rocks show.
  • JavaScript Jabber: A small panel of javascript devs talking about modern WebDev.  Has bit of a Rails slant but hey, javascript is javascript.
  • The Javascript Show: Jason Seifer and Peter Cooper discuss the latest news in Javascript development.


The ones I read consistently...
And the long list of blogs I read when I have time...
