How do I get up-to-date on web development technologies?
I am a bit outdated, and at my office we want to upgrade a product, and this time we want to do it right, so it lasts for a few years
My background is from 2004 with JEE applications, Spring, Hibernate, GWT and RPC calls stuff; I know they still exist and are updated constantly. How can you find information related to web development trends?, any books, magazines, sites?. Would like to explore web services as well
The idea is that I want to be capable of making informed architecture decisions instead of biasing all my work to what I already know.
Answering what you use in your personal projects is useful, but would be more handy if you can backup that saying how you reached that decision
