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.

AS SEEN ON

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.

- Maik Schmidt, Software Developer & Technology Architect.
Author of Enterprise Recipes with Ruby and Rails by The Pragmatic Programmers

About

Human Readable Magazine is a subscription-based monthly magazine available in all formats: Web, Mobile, e-Book, and Print. It brings you insightful articles on programming topics in a variety of languages and domains. Each article strives to contribute to deep, practical programming knowledge, and thereby the development of better software.

Technical Deep Dives

Each article is well-researched and goes in-depth on a specific subject. This is what we mean by our mantra, “technical deep dives for the inquisitive programmer.” 

Breadth and Depth

Human Readable Magazine is programming language and domain agnostic, covering a wide variety of technologies.

Focus

We present carefully curated, in-depth technical articles that you can read at a meditative, unhurried, thought-provoking pace. All the code without the fluff.
