Great essays, a must read.

Joel Spolsky, one of the most important persons in the field today. For me. Especially read his older, classic posts (or, while you’re at it, get his books).
Author of “Windows Internals” and founder of Sysinternals (aquired by Microsoft in 2007).
Mixed blog on software engineering. Together with Joel Spolsky, he founded StackOverflow, a new platform to discuss development.
A whole magnitude of consolidated knowledge.

“An author, speaker, consultant and general loud-mouth on software development”. One of the authors of “Refactoring: Improving the Design of Existing Code”, “UML Destilled” and the Manifesto for Agile Development.

Raymond Chen, a senior Microsoft engineer, blogs about “technical nitty-gritty, with a Microsoft focus”.
A collection of blog article links related to software development, with a focus on startups and economics (YCombinator is a venture capitalist); similar to Joel Reddit. Actually, I like the contents of Joel Reddit more.
Martin Pool’s blogs about… well, I’m not sure.
