Whether you are just starting out in the industry or a 10 year veteran, you need to start reading these immediately.


Code as Craft is a blog created by Etsy.com. As one might expect, this blog is absolutely gorgeous with a simple black and white font/background, bold titles and plenty of pictures to keep you interested. Once you get past the aesthetic this blog is all about finding Best Practices and looking at a company from every direction. This is a must read that makes users like Etsy even more than they already do.


The agile admin blog is close to being the only resource users need when it comes to the DevOps world. Run by four web systems administrators this blog is indeed agile. Whether they are posting about the most recent DevOps Days, a Velocity Conference, or it being System Administrators Day on July 25th, these folks are always on top of whatever news is happening in the DevOps and agile world.


The DevOps Guys blog is all about DevOps culture and everything surrounding it. The blog is run by Steve Thair – The Ops guy and James Smith – The Dev guy and together they create one of the most interesting posts we have seen. Maybe the most enjoyable on the list, this blog is fun and it understands the ever changing culture and industry of DevOps.
