The world of software moves quickly. Being a software developer today means learning new things constantly.

It seems like every day there is some new open source library to discover or a new best practice to discuss. Even our job titles change all the time. In my bio I call myself a front end web and mobile app developer. If you googled those terms five years ago, you wouldn’t even have found them:

My latest app Best Baby App was written in the programming language Swift. Swift wasn’t even released to the public until mid 2014.

I love what I do and I wouldn’t be doing it if I didn’t stay up to date.

Constantly learning is just part of being a software developer

So how do I stay up to date?


I love Twitter.

We live in an amazing time in human history when you can listen to the top people in your industry every day. Where they can have an idea and distribute it to their followers in seconds. Where you can reach out and interact with them at any time.

Over the past few years I have assembled a curated list of technical twitter accounts that I use to keep me up to date.

Here, in no particular order, is my personal, artisan-ally hand crafted blend of technical twitter accounts:

Note: I’ve gone through each account and picked out one recent tweet to embed. That way you can scroll down and just click ‘Follow’ on any that you like.
