Diverse Rolling

Two years ago, I took the OPML file from Brent Simmons’ inessential post “Blogs by Women”, threw it into my RSS reader, and magically had 30+ new blogs to read.

Here are the favorites of mine that are still around and active.

Erica Sadun (Twitter)
I’ve known about Erica’s work since the 2013 Edge Cases episode “Rectangles on a String”. (I even know how to pronounce her last name, even if she does pronounce tuple wrong.) Her blog updates several times a week, often about some detail of Swift development. She’s written a bunch of books, mostly focused on developers, and one book on Swift.

Accidentally in Code, by Cate Huston (Twitter)
Most delightful find for me personally. She talks about a variety of issues in the tech industry, including managing, as I’ve previously mentioned.

Becky Hansmeyer (Twitter)
From her own description, her blog is “my own little place to comment on Apple & general technology news, as well as what it’s like to be a novice developer with no prior programming experience.” Her tag line is “100% grass-fed Swift”.

Natasha the Robot (Twitter)
Helpful posts on iOS/watchOS and Swift topics. Natasha is the organizer of the try! Swift conference, and frequent speaker.

Julia Evans (Twitter)
Detailed, explanatory posts on a variety of tech topics. Very motivational! Not iOS-related, however.

And finally, a great blogger who’s been very active recently who’s not on the list:

Stephanie Hurlburt (Twitter)
Graphics developer and entrepreneur, who posts about a variety of aspects of the tech industry, some of them quite personal.

Enjoy!
