Programming blogs that go deep

My favorite way to spend a few hours is to dive deep into a topic, and often I need a good starting place. Over the past few years, I have come across blogs that I always come back to. The authors of these blogs put significant effort into their writing.

These blogs are about programming, not something like enterprise architecture, which you can definitely write in-depth posts about, but which is not the focus of the blogs I have listed here.

This selection of blogs has been influenced by what I personally enjoy thinking about. There many areas within the software field, from low-level embedded systems to the marketing that is inevitably required when creating your own software product. These blogs focus mostly on developing software, at the level of the programming language. It’s hard to describe, but I hope it gets the point across. These blogs are not about engineering management, nor are they about programming robots.

I’ll go through them one by one and describe what caught my attention the first time, and what keeps me coming back.

That’s my list! It’s what I’m reading now, and it will certainly change after I write this. Hopefully someone who likes programming will find these blogs to be insightful!
