Programmers Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for professional programmers interested in conceptual questions about software development. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Last week I read a great post of Jeff Atwood Keeping Up and "Just In Time" Learning that speaks about how to keep update. The blog post reports Kathy Sierra list, the first item 'Find the best aggregators' has captured my attention. I'm used to look at DZone, IMHO a good aggregator. DZone has voting and tagging. Or recently I discovered Java Code Geeks.

Are there any other good programming blog post aggregator?

in what technology set are you interested? Following official developer blog of the technology of interest seems working pretty good for me. –  Yusubov Oct 8 '12 at 17:56
@ElYusubov, thank you for the advice. I think that also other developers may have good ideas, in a site as dzone they are highlighted, whereas in the official techology blog they don't. –  landal79 Oct 8 '12 at 21:23

I prefer to stay out of DZone - the stuff there is pretty "raw" - you will see a lot of things that you don't need or want to look at. Unless you are willing to spend much time there, you could hardly learn from it.

You could look into news sites that aggregate and choose the stories for you. My favorite would be InfoQ. There are a lot of recorded talks from conferences from which you can learn. The articles are also good (focused mainly on Java and .NET)

For java specific news try JAXenter, and High Scalability gives a you an inside into how some of the largest sites on the internet are made.

Both InfoQ and JAXenter are valuable resources. But I'm looking for an aggregator of developer blog posts. What do you think about javacodegeeks? –  landal79 Oct 8 '12 at 12:14
@landal79 Sorry, I don't know any deb blogs aggregators, I actually heard this one (javacodegeeks) for the first time :) It seems interesting, you could add it to your question to clarify what you are looking for. –  jmruc Oct 8 '12 at 13:04
