Announcing: 20 Lists for 2020

I'm proud to announce a new series of articles I've been working on since April of this year: 20 Lists for 2020.

20 Lists for 2020 is what it sounds like -- a comprehensive series of 20 listicles (of varying lengths) for developers to kick-start your curiosity, fill in the gaps in your knowledge, and better connect you to this community of which we're all a part.

While I initially planned on waiting until December to start releasing these articles, I'm just too excited! I've decided to start sharing them with the world now!

Articles now available include:

  1. 20 Most-Recommended Books for Software Developers
  2. 20 Fantastically Bad Predictions Made About Computing and Technology
  3. 20 Ways to Fight Impostor Syndrome
  4. 20 Small Steps to Become a Regex Master
  5. 20 Intriguing, Unusual, and Goofy Programming Languages
  6. 20 Reasons to Move On from Java 8

"20 Reasons to Move On from Java 8" was published on Saturday 23 November. At this point, I need to take a break for a bit (it's Thanksgiving in the USA this week and I'm on vacation). Look for the series to start up again in a few weeks

The series is still in progress, so let me know if you have any ideas for articles, or questions you'd like to see answered. (I have a few posts completely finished, and a bunch more in progress, but all 20 lists aren't yet spoken for!)

Happy reading!

Bonjour Andrew

You should use the "series" feature on so that your 20 lists are nicely linked together

I will, Jean-Michel! It doesn't show up if there's only one item in the series, though... When I post the next article next week, you'll be able to see it on the individual posts.

I'm not including this post as part of the series, because I submitted it after the "20 Books" post, so they're out of order chronologically and it looks odd in the "series" UI.

Merci beaucoup quand même! :)
