Human Readable is a unique initiative to provide in-depth knowledge into programming. It presents high-quality articles about programming, focused on the technical aspects, and accessible to developers not specialised in the programming language of a particular article.

From the creator of Morning Cup of Coding

Morning Cup of Coding is a curated programming newsletter with 6,000 subscribers and growing. It arrives in your inbox daily with technical articles that span all fields of software engineering.

We are now taking the next step and producing a magazine in the spirit of our newsletter. The same authors you've enjoyed reading are now creating original content exclusively for Human Readable Magazine.


I look forward to each issue of "The Morning Cup of Coding", because I learn something interesting every day. Sometimes I wished that it'd be even a bit more comprehensive, so I was excited to hear about the Human Readable Magazine.
