I'm pretty active on Slack (most active, ahem…). I like to chat, because I believe strong communication is super helpful for teams, but it’s also a lot of fun (gifs, memes, etc).
Straddling that line, I post articles I come across in relevant channels that I think others would appreciate or learn from, and typically they do. Often, I get asked where I find all of these blog posts…
No, I don’t follow all of those random developers. There’s a crazy amount of talented people out there, but luckily, there are other people already taking the time to aggregate all of this awesome content.
This isn’t a complete list, but should get the job done.

RSS & Blogs
Feedly free works really well for an RSS reader, but there are many alternatives. If using Feedly, most of these can be searched for when adding a new source.
- React Blog – News straight from the React team
- Netflix Tech Blog – Developer tools and insight from the Netflix team
- Chromium Blog – Gotta keep up with your browser updates
- Coding Horror – Developer blog from Jeff Atwood
- swissmiss – Design and inspiration from Tina Roth Eisenberg
- xkcd – Web comic fo laughs and deep thoughts
- Web Designer Depot – I really only like their “Popular Design News” posts in which they aggregate random articles from the web
P.S. If you like any of these, be sure to look if they have a Patreon or something similar and throw them a dollar or $2 a month for their effort. 🙂
