    Dan Luu's blog Erik Bernhardsson's blog Those are blogs I'll actively seek out new content from, rather than waiting for something to surface on Hackernews.

    For those erring on the devops and business management side of software engineering/development, Signal v. Noise from David Heinemeier Hansson and Jason Fried is a good read.

      I would read anything he writes with a great care. I wrote about why in some detail here. The tl;dr is that Drew is exceptionally opinionated, and many of those opinions are not correct, and he is not gracious about considering other points of view.

      Some of the things that he suggest are wrong to the point of being detrimental (like his stance on "there are no good laptops" or "modern computers make you a bad developer" or "the only valid way to distribute a patch is via email" or I could go on, but that was just off the top of my head and I don't want to actually open his blog).
