Links that come in Handy working in IT - updated 4/25/2021

Since working in the IT field for quite some time, I've used multiple sites for training, documentation, and community help. As I switch jobs I've lost my bookmarks and had to search for sites all over again. I recently had the epiphany to just start adding them to a document as well, so when I change jobs, swap computers I don't lose good resources. This is a work in progress list for me, but I've been trying to compile a list of my most used sites while working in IT. I've also added some sites that I frequent for shopping and conventions. I created a google doc that I can access anywhere, so I have access to it on multiple computers at my worksite and home. I'm sure there are other sites that I can't think of at the moment so I will continue to add to this list. If any of you know of any good resources to add to my list or maybe a better way to accomplish what I'm trying to do, please let me know in the comments.


I hope my current list helps some people. If enough people are interested I could also continue to post updates or share a link to view my google doc.

I work in Big Data, Love playing video games, and often go to conventions. I mainly post free or inexpensive training and about video games.

It's becoming more and more necessary for persons in many aspects of a business to have some knowledge of programming. I know since working in Data the two languages I've been asked to learn are R and Python. I've since learned those languages, but I continue to train myself in other techniques using various online training. There is a wide range of free to paid training online, I'll be posting a few that I use.
