*Any* thoughts?

When I interact with professors they (nearly) always ask about how to stay current. Many don't know what resources to visit for current trends and to see how things are evolving. I suspect we all know how radically different many web dev aspects can be in any 6 month window.

You may have considered this in your "reading lists" bullet, but I am wary of the can of worms recommending specific blogs/sites can open. I, for one, rail against any reference to W3 Schools. While I used to recommend evolt.org, I think we all know its time has passed.

Is it too early to identify a set of parameters for suggesting ongoing, day-to-day online resources?



Sent from my tablet and probably full of typos as a result.
