Finding a mentor is one of the quickest ways to become an expert! Following technology blogs, either through email notifications or a service like Feedly, can give you access to experts around the globe. The collection below, organized by technology, lists any blogs that I follow. Items in blue are new as of the last update. Items crossed out are off my list. This list changes depending on the content of the blog, if the blog is still active, and what I am currently trying to master.
Of course, you can also subscribe to DeployHappiness by email (top right corner of any page) or through RSS: http://feeds.feedburner.com/Deployhappiness. If I missed any great blogs, let me know in the comments below!
