Here are magazines that I subscribe to and read.
- Linux Magazine – All of my production servers (23 now) run the linux operating system and I do most of the system administration on them so I like to keep on top of what is going on with it. Generally I find 1 article or so that gets my attention until the end and for me, A.D.D Boy, that is saying a lot.
- 2600 Magazine – I LOVE 2600. I have been reading 2600 since about 1994’ish. I have had 4 articles published in 2600 about random hacking stuff (mostly cellphone related) and I usually read 2600 cover to cover. I love the code samples. For instance this month they have a total walk through on how to hack facebook, myspace, and a bunch of other stuff that while I would not do the actual hacks its interesting to look at the Cross Site sploits to see if any of my stuff would be vulnerable to it.
I worked in Unix Security for a fortune 500 company for years and I have to say most of the hardcore auditors and respected consultants I knew all read 2600 =).
- Php Architect – I picked up this magazine in mid 2005 and really enjoyed the through step by step walk through. My php h4x is much better now and though I find a lot of the walk throughs trivial I always get great ideas from them. If you are wanting to learn PHP or a beginning PHP programer looking for something that starts at the beginning I highly recommend a subscription to this magazine.
- Web Designer & Web Developer Magazines – These are UK based magazines and a little pricey (I think 15$ per) but they are jam packed with great tutorials and code. They also included a ton of software on there cds. Nice to have when your on a plane or stuck somewhere without net access. I kind of have a love/hate relationship with these mags. I love the fact they cover so much stuff and diversify the software and architecture at the same time it kind of sucks like when your a php developer and they only have 1 thing on php and the rest is on cold fusion and .net/asp
I keep all these magazines in the office library (otherwise known as the bathroom). No reason to waste time in there =P (money never sleeps pal)
Maybe you guys have some recomendations for other magazines?
