My Bookmarks for Developer and other IT Resources

Over the years, I have dabbled in various software/hardware studies and hobbyist blogs, in addition to my enterprise IT work experience.

I have aggregated my list of many web pages and projects that I am interested in. Some of these products I have already used and do endorse. Outside of that, I have no other affiliation with them other than researching or saving for future reading.

Not everything here is free or open-source but much of it is.

Please feel free to share any of your favorites. I hope this will serve as an aid for others, at whatever stepping stone you are on in your career path.

Hey Chris,

great list, thanks for sharing. Some of them I retrieve in my own bookmarks collection. At some point in time mine got so big I had to find a better solution for managing it. So I developed where I handle my dev "work" related bookmarks...

🌚 Browsing with dark mode makes you a better developer.

It's a scientific fact.
