Fellow devs, what are your top 2 tech magazine subscription recommendation?
I like CODE Magazine a lot (https://codemag.com/Magazine), and I believe you can get a free one year subscription to it right now if you sign up for Visual Studio Dev Essentials (or have a Visual Studio subscription like Pro.) I love having a physical copy so I can still be learning, but in a disconnected way.
I love physical copies too! Thanks for the suggestion, I will definitely check it out!
I don't want to be too negative, but tech is the only field where I would not buy print magazines. Having said that, Stripe just started a print version of their https://increment.com/ magazine, which seems interesting.
Sorry, I know it is off topic but I listen to the Indie Hackers and Software Engineering Daily podcasts and find them very beneficial.
Is used to get a physical copy of MSDN Magazine back when I was working as a .NET dev and thought that was pretty good for .NET ecosystem information.
I also used to read Dr. Dobbs way back in the day.
Totally off topic again: I typed in like ten pages of Basic code from Family Computing Magazine when I was like 11 maybe. They actually used to print entire programs back then! Who needs GitHub anyway?
It was a simple, snake like game but in '83 I felt like some kind of serious hacker man! :-)
I love podcasts too! I love physical magazines as well! especially when my eyes need a break from screen.
I used to buy O Riley books all the time before the online service came out. Now I read a lot of books digitally.
I hear you though, I like a real book once in a while. I read science fiction and generally just check out books from the library for that. I go for the classics.
The only time I do that is if it's in a language I'm learning and I want something I can doodle on and use for intensive practice.
In general I lean towards either books, or single-topic blog posts.
Like physical magazines?
