Nice list.Thanks. 🙂Reply

Radenko ZecJuly 21, 2014 at 1:18 pm (9 years ago)
Sampath thanks for comment.
ScottGu is legend however he lately publishes only one post per month and less not too much programming related so I decided to skip him from my list.

Not one blogger of these is a professional PHP blogger. Most are Microsoft bloggers. Any good PHP blogger that you recommend?Reply
Radenko ZecJuly 23, 2014 at 5:53 am (9 years ago)
Thanks for comment. I am not following PHP community a lot. Actually I only do WordPress from time to time.
So I can only recommend WPBegginer as WordPress blog.
Feel free to suggest some good PHP bloggers.

Hey Stephen. I have just forgot to include those 3.
Actually it is very hard to cover all valuable bloggers so your comment is much appreciated.

I recently launched Unexpected Token: https://medium.com/unexpected-token on Medium where CTOs from startups share their experience and knowledge. It’s not focused on a specific technology and has great pieces on either programming challenges or sometimes management/strategy/recruitment. (full disclosure: it’s powered by my company eFounders – startup studio) – I’d love to get your feedback!Reply
