I wanted to share some links to some cool stuff I’ve found recently.
This is a free monthly magazine by the folks to publish the Pragmatic Programmers series of books. They release the issues in pdf, epub and mobi formats in addition to HTML on the site. Lots of great stuff to load onto your ereader.
This site is a hub for software news. There’s a lot of press releases for Apache projects you’ve never heard of, but there’s also some Q&A with project managers and commentary on the goings on with Oracle and whatnot. Add the RSS feed to your feed reader and subscribe to their free occasional PDF magazine JAXmag.
The Java Posse
This is a group of four high-level developers who do a semi-regular podcast discussing Java. It can get really annoying when they talk over each other, and the episodes sometimes approach two rambling hours in length, but they are really smart and well-connected guys who are usually worth listening to.
