20 Must-Read Blogs for Freelance Developers

With all of the other must-read lists here on freelance folder, I don’t think it would be fair to leave out the amazing developers who are regular readers. This post contains 20 must-read blogs for freelance developers, from php to jquery, ruby on rails, css and general web development.

With all of the regular articles and tutorials being posted on these blogs, it’s easy for a beginner developer (or even a designer who’s dabbling with the idea of becoming a developer) to learn a ton of useful information. I personally subscribe to all of these sites and have learned more in the past few months that I think I ever have in my life. They’re definitely worth the RSS subscriptions — trust me, you won’t regret it.
