DZone: a great news resource for software developers

DZone is a great website with news related to software development. It has the following advantages:
  • Topic-related subsites. These subsites are called zones and allow you to focus on what you want to know about. There currently are zones for the following topics: Agile, Cloud, Mobile, .Net, Java, Web Builder, IDEs & Tools, Languages, Architects, Books, Servers.
  • Friendly and knowledgeable community. DZoners tend to “get it” and to be courteous. In many other public web places, ignorant and hostile behavior is common.
  • Keeping up with trends. Many people contribute to DZone (some of my blog posts are republished there) which ensures a broad perspective.
