There is excellent content lost on the internet everywhere: some well-known and established by the community, and a lot to still discover. Today's challenge is to found those hidden sources.
Because staying up-to-date on the latest evolution is as important as ever in our industry that keeps evolving. So at Scaleway, our engineers took the initiative to list and share their best sources on technology intelligence to help onboard new people to our team.
We wanted to share with you those sources that we enjoy using. We hope that you will like them as much as we do.
