Last month we published a popular article named top 30 web designers on twitter. As we are called “WebDesignDev”, we didn’t want to miss out a list for development junkies, so here we have piled together a compilation of top 30 programmers to follow on twitter. Remember to click each image to go to the programmers twitter profile. The list is in no particular order, there are just 30 top programmers.

Remember to check out our Twitter Profile! Plus if you think I have missed any from the list, then please feel free to drop us a comment, but otherwise, enjoy!

If you are a software developer and you don’t *enjoy* buying software, then it’s time to take a long, hard look at your career path

Thought Apple was making good progress by providing queue status widget and escalation email address. Then I read about Ninjawords on DF.

Starting to think poorly of people who say “gotten”. I think I’m those people though.

That said, I think you *can* fix a lot of product flaws w/o changing the product. Lots of ways to help users be better with whatever it is.

Good chunk written today; being kinda quiet on Twitter (it’s the distraction machine).

Ditching TimeWarner for AT&T internet. Trying to move beyond 12/2 Mb down/up. TW has faster speed in other parts of Austin-not at my house

My new tv has ethernet. Plays xvids better than my PCH and shows my Flickr Sets perfectly. The 15-yr old tv it replaced had an ON button.

It’s a special kind of awesome that academic computer scientists would rely on something as awful as EasyChair for conference management.

Found lots of “wow gold” comment spam on my blog, started wondering. Discovered “Gold Farming” article in wikipedia. Wow indeed.

The car chase that ended last night here in Los Altos Hills seems to have done a number on the power lines down on Magdalena…

I don’t understand why Bill Kristol has any credibility anymore. Or why he keeps going on The Daily Show.

No sooner than I tweet about missing AT&T service and it appears. Maybe I can find my sock that way?

    Not sure how the choices for the list came about. Some of the programmers are at the level of telling us what they had for breakfast, but with no solid info or links there. Some good ones, but a lot of white noise….it would appear to be a list of top people with twitter accounts, not top twitterers who program.

  9. Juan Jose Zapico

    IT celebrities to follow: @WardCunningham @ErichGamma @martinfowler @joshbloch @KentBeck @springrod

  10. Alif Rachmawadi

    All of these people have the same thing in common: they are great at branding and design.

    I have been learning Systems Analysis and it has been awesome in helping how to implement large scale custom business applications.
