Top 100 Blogs for Software Development Managers


Jurgen Appelo put together an impressive list of what he calls the Top 100 Blogs for Software Development Managers (Q3 2008).  I think it’s a great way to find out about blogs you might not know about.

The Top 10
Here’s the top ten blogs on the list:

No, I didn’t make the top 10.  I’m number 20.

Blogs That Made the List
In Jurgen’s words:

"The idea of this list is to promote popular blogs that are interesting to software development managers. Therefore, I ignored the blogs that did not have any (recent) content directly related to either requirements, design, coding, testing, management, process improvement or methodologies. I also discarded generic project management blogs without topics on software development practices. Likewise, I discarded the pure coding and technology blogs when they did not elevate to the level of "managing" or "ruminating about" software development. Last of all, I only considered blogs in the English language."

  1. I can’t find Code SOD / Daily WTF / Worse Than Failure on this 100 list, let alone on the top 10.

    Hrmn… I probably shouldn’t read this list anyways, the last thing I need is more feeds in my RSS reader.
