One of the most useful recipes that i use to push myself further in my career & work is to increase my knowledge through early morning injections! A little bit harmful especially if ur still in “Out of reach” mode… But hay… No pain… NO gain!!! ; )
Following is my recipes with the suggested dose amounts:
JavaWorld : One of the great sites that talks about it all! Core Java, Enterprise Java, Mobile Java and much more! Pay it a visit every 3 days/week at least if you just wanna be update to date. And as much as necessary if you find yourself below level…
Builder AU : A general website for all kind of developers (Java, C++, .Net, PHP, Oracle, …etc). Endless amount of articles and code snippets. What makes it special for me is its “Strategy” section that is filled with articles and tips on the business of IT and how to conquer it all. Pay it almost a daily visit to be updated with the IT industry, don’t forget to check the archives.
JavaPractices : If you this site from long time ago, then you’re hell lucky! I only came across it recently! Not that fancy with the looks & design, but the content… WOW! A marvelous site that has put into implementation LOADS of java examples & practices that are divided into categories. Pay this site a visit whenever you wanna push yourself one step further in programming. (Make it as much as possible!)
Sun : well… there is no other better place than the source of java itself “SUN” for being up to date with the java language documentation, downloads, news updates, resources, events and much others… Pay it a visit once a week at least.
p.s. All previous recipes & ingredients did not show any harmful side effects when overdosed…
If you got any more recipes, i would like to know… = )
