Tyler’s Must-Read Favorite Software Development Blogs

As professionals and people who care deeply about our craft, enjoying life and staying on top of the ever changing software development world, we spend a fair amount time reading. While reading choice may vary greatly according to your level of experience, interest and niches, we’ve found that some of our favorites are shared among us. Although we focus mostly on development in JavaScript, Angular 2, TypeScript, MongoDB and Nodejs, we also try to be pretty well rounded in the development world.

With the hundreds of blogs out there, it can be difficult to know where to begin. So today, we share Tyler’s top favorites. Tyler is one of our top architects and responsible for building large components of our clients’ enterprise systems as well as Cycligent Cloud and Cycligent Git Tool. Without further ado, here are his favorites:
