Hi,

everything changes quit fast, sometimes its hard to keep up-to-date with the latest technology.

What does one do to keep up-to-date? Any suggestions for a good website?

Thanks in advance.

I use Rss feeds to feed me stuff . I have feeds from JBoss, infoQ and some small blogs.
I also check out the Java Community Process Site.

what technology do you want to keep up with? For Java, this one is pretty good.


There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors

I want to keep up to date with Java and related technologies.

For example, say there is a new library for JSF which makes life even more easier for development, where would you have a good chance to hear about it?

I keep tabs on the Cafe au Lait web site, the java.net home page, and TheServerSide, amongst other sources.
