Magazines
While books are great ways to learn, their long development cycle means that their content is dated the day the book hits the street. Nor can books be easily, or frequently, updated.

Fortunately, programmers who want the latest information have several avenues available to them - magazines, newsletters, conferences, blogs and webcasts - each with varying degrees of "freshness" of the information provided (perhaps 1-3 months with magazines and webcasts or only days with newsletters and blogs).

On this page I provide a summary of the magazines that a PowerBASIC programmer might find interesting, categorized as to the information covered. I also highlight "online magazines", where the content is updated/archived on a monthly basis.

Recommendations
As you can see from browsing the links above, there are hundreds of magazines that a PowerBASIC programmer might be benefit from reading. Here is my suggestion of a short list to which you should subscribe.

The problem is, of course, that there are no PowerBASIC-specific magazines. So the best you can do is find a magazine whose coverage is generic - covering Windows, multiple languages, algorithms, and other topics which can influence your design of PowerBASIC programs.

I also suggest your check out my recommended magazines for QBasic programmers. At least the content of these will have familiar syntax, making it easier to convert interesting code to PowerBASIC.

If you have any suggestions on additions to this list, please let me know.
