Programming as a profession is on the boom and this industry is creating new jobs for millions of people across the world. Along with the classroom training, programming blogs plays a crucial role in the learning process. This post is about the top programming blogs in the world.

Top Programming Blogs in the World
Programming blogs help you to keep yourself updated about the latest developments in the programming world. Usually, each blog author sticks to topics that he or she is the most familiar with. 

One blogger could write only about node.js, another only about web development, another one only about shell scripting. When you reach a certain programming expertise such blogs are essential for your career development. 

Another major benefit is that all blogs are usually free and so you won’t have to think about the budget.
