The web is always evolving. It’s nearly impossible to keep up with it all on your own. There are new technologies, frameworks, ideas and processes developing every day. That’s where RSS feeds come in!
RSS feeds are XML output that RSS feed readers can use to notify you (the reader) of new posts to the feed! Google FeedBurner used to be the most popular feed reader, but that has been discontinued. The alternative that I now use is called Feedreader.
Once you have your Feedreader account set up, you are ready to start consuming some RSS feeds! Here are ten stellar feeds that you should consider subscribing to:
