Recently I was asked what you should do as a software engineer to keep your skill up to date.
Of course, there are many things you can do. But one of the simplest and most effective practices in my view is reading.
There are three websites I visit and scan as part of my daily routine to learn about new trends in technology.
Personally I don’t limit myself to a specific topic. I just pick whatever looks interesting. The reason is that although I may not have a problem that I need to solve today, the gained knowledge may serve me very well later.
What I particularly like about dev.to is that you get a continuous feed of articles – and they are usually pretty short.
