This is a great day!
From today NOOP.NL can claim to be the #1 software development-related blog in Europe.
Well, that’s nice.
And some other people are also doing well on this new edition of the Top 200 Blogs for Developers. Jeff Atwood has replaced Scott Hanselman, meaning that he now has the #1 Development Blog in the world! And look at Scott Berkun, shooting up to the #3 spot. How does he do that? He’s not even a developer! Plus, we have no less than 21 new entries on the list. I’m sure there’s something for everyone here.
Like before, I created this list using Google PageRank, Technorati Authority, Alexa Rank, Google links, Twitter Grader Rank, AideRSS PostRank and the Mongolian Stock Exchange. (For more information see: How to Make a Top Blog List.) And like before, I hope you will tweet, digg, bookmark, and comment the hell out of this article! It was, as usual, a tremendous amount of work.
I have updated a significant number of Twitter names in this list, and I’m confident that this is now the best list of software development twitterers in the world. Use it to connect with all soft dev gurus and celebrities. And don’t forget to follow me as well: @jurgenappelo. I try no to be boring. Usually.
If you want to import all feeds in your reader, grab the OPML file here.
(Note: The list does not contain blogs where the authors exclusively write about specific tools or technologies, like .NET, or Java. Every blog should have at least _some_ content that is of interest to every developer regardless of technical background.)
TT = This Time
LT = Last Time
Note: for some of the statistics I happily used the script that was kindly supplied by Steven Machtelinckx. This saved me a lot of time… Thanks Steven!
