How do you learn about new technologies and frameworks?

It's important to stay up-to-date with new trends, frameworks, technologies, or general changes in the tech world.

How do you stay updated with new technologies and frameworks? And is it part of your day-to-day routine or is it not a high priority for you?

P.S: Medusa is holding a mini-contest and the winner gets a free t-shirt! Learn more about it and how to participate in this post.

I'm signed up with quite a few newsletters, so that is a way for me to keep up to date. Theres also YouTube channels that I watch too. I learn from the videos and by building something or just tinkering with the code.

I built webnuz.com , i have it pulling articles from some 50+ source sites [RSS feeds], parses them into my own db.
It updates every 2 hours, some 250-350 articles per day.
I just scan headlines to see what's new and read the ones that stand out to me.

Note, this was a lot easier to keep up with when i first built it in 2011 and i only got like 20-30 articles a day lol

Mostly from Twitter, GitHub, and YouTube. All accounts I follow are personally curated. So I usually unfollow and even block/mute account that either uninteresting or irrelevant to me. Unfortunately, blogging platform like dev.to and medium don't give me good recommendation. Hashnode seems interesting and can give a good recommendation but for me the audience is not yet there. Better to use RSS feed when I found hidden gem.

Google does a fairly good job based on my interests. I get dev.to articles in my news timeline regularly 😜

Nice, is it through Google discover? Or the Google app?

I believe it's the google app... It shows up in my news timeline on my android phone. From there if I see something interesting I bookmark it to my reading list.

I try to see a crash course on the subject before proceeding to buy an actual course.

Then I try to build something cool or challenging afterwards.
