In this post, I’d like to share the resources that I often use. Most of them are well know but I thought maybe your favorite resource is not listed below, then ShareIT, I will appreciate IT.
Let me share my resources
- Oreilly Books: Definitely it’s my favorite resource if I tend to learn something new extensively. You can subscribe online and access all resources not only books but also videos!. If you are a student you do not need even to pay simply high-quality resources FREE!
- Corresponding Tool Docs: To be honest this is the first place where should take a look if you start to learn/practice a new technology. However, there are some tools that have really poor documentation.
- GitHub Repos: Most open source tools have great README.md where you may start quickly. Simply go check out and deep into examples. In case you face a problem, check the issues as well. In many cases, this problem is already known and you may see already the solution or way of how to handle it.
- Twitter: Yeah definitely, just follow people or communities on there, you will be up2date and there are lots of constructive shares, discussion, views as well as announces.
- HackerNews: I really like to spend a bit of time here, where you also see many informative shares and discussions.
- High Scalability: Another resource reach blogs and mostly about infrastructure/cloud. But definitely lots of valuable articles.
- Youtube: I have to admit that I use youtube also really often. It is simply an online university where you reach out to MIT, Stanford, Yale, Harvard, Princeton, and many other top universities CS courses free.
- Medium: I like to read medium blogs as well but mostly you have to pay, which I definitely don’t like! In my opinion, if you write a blog on the internet it must be free. Detailed discussion no need here.
- Personal Blogs: Some content creators use their own blogs to share their articles. This depends on your interest and you have to find it accordingly.
- Mailing List: The developer mailing list is also one of the resources that when I tackle a specific issue.
- StackOverflow/Reddit: No need to say, I don’t think there is an engineer(Software) who doesn’t use at least one of them.
Beyond question, there are many more resources out there. Above I shared my favorite resources where I spent the most time.
If you have some different resources which you labeled absolutely useful, please share as a comment.
