I don’t spend much time on software engineering industry reports, but the Thoughtworks Radar is one I love. Broad, clear-eyed, hands on, eminently useful. Bite-sized analyses of ~100 tools and techniques, new and old, with recommendations to adopt or trial or assess or hold, and a brief nod toward overarching themes. It’s evidently become so successful that it’s spawned an entire category.
The latest volume came out last month, and as usual, it’s a banger. I’m only maybe a third of the way through, and I already have todos to learn more about run cost prediction, accessibility testing, and Logseq, among others.
Free, ~40 pages, twice a year. Not an ad, I have no affiliation with them, just a fan.
