33 Developers you MUST Subscribe to as a JavaScript Junkie

by

As JavaScript developers, we have quite crazy requirements. The playing field is in a state of constant flux and one of the best ways to keep up is interacting with other developers and reading their code. Blogs, such as the one you're reading, are a perfect amalgamation of these two activities.

Today, I'd like to bring your attention to a number of blogs written by pretty well versed developers, focusing on JavaScript development, that you owe yourselves to bookmark.


A Quick Word on my Choices

Even though these blogs aren't updated often, in fact a lot of them get updated maybe thrice a year, the content they do have are worth their weight in, well, smartly written JavaScript. The developers below vary from wildly popular to almost obscure but they have one thing in common -- their passion for JavaScript.

I've limited myself to a cliff notes version of each dev to keep it short. Don't loiter around -- click on those links and get reading!
