“This is a continually updated list of the best UX resources.
Last updated 3/17/2016
Over the years I’ve collected a ton of different resources to help me with my product & UX work. I’ve signed up for dozens of newsletters and blog emailers, purchased a bunch of books, checked out some online courses, and have used a wide range of tools to help me bring my ideas to life. Finally, I decided to go through all of my bookmarks, emails, and text files and put of all these resources into a comprehensive list.
