A list of engineering blogs

One of my favorite technology trends of the past few years has been the emergence of engineering blogs. They are, mostly, a recruiting tool, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t learn a lot about how companies operating at varying levels of maturity and scale go about their business. Here are the engineering blogs I’m following right now:

What sorts of things are companies publishing on engineering blogs? Here are a few examples of particularly good engineering blog posts I’ve read over the years:

  1. Apple and Microsoft. Apple obviously doesn’t blog and Microsoft just didn’t make the cut.

  2. I said to myself – “let’s do a service to the community and prepare an OPML file of this fine list of sites.”

    Alas, I haven’t found a good online OPML generator. The one I have found doesn’t parse the feeds and get their title and description.

    At this point I have stopped. This is what I got. Hope it will be useful in some way.
