Developer Resources

Technical & not-so-technical resources

A random, possibly useless list of resources aimed primarily at developers or software engineers, but with many for designers, UI and UX engineers as well. Actually, I try to make this list applicable to anyone in IT, including entrepreneurs, but know that it’s not as comprehensive in each area of focus as I’d like it to be. Eventually, I’d love for this to be community-driven. Please let me know if you have any resources you’d like to share. 🙂
