Over the last few years, I’ve amassed a pretty large repository of knowledge of technologies, tools and techniques within my profession. A lot of people have often wondered how I came to know so much, but the truth is, it was actually really simple: mostly I follow and keep up on certain Twitter users, follow a few subreddits on Reddit, and keep an ear out for any mention of cool things in news articles. Obviously, it definitely helps to maintain a natural curiosity in all things related to technology, since inspiration for techniques and solutions can come from a variety of sources, but also trying to apply those techniques in imagined - but likely - scenarios. This point is important, as it helps you answer the questions “What situations is this technology/solution well-suited for?” or “Is this technology appropriate for this kind of problem?”
Anyway, I wanted to share my list of “resources” on the Internet, and I highly recommend taking a look, maybe even adding it to your own bookmarks:
More to come, but these are just a couple off the top of my head.
