Useful Resources for SysAdmins

The below are some resources that I find useful in my role as a (mainly Windows) sysadmin. If there are any that I have missed that you think would be useful to others then please leave a comment and I will add them to this list.

Mailing Lists/Blogs

Mailing lists are a valuable source of information from the community and knowledgeable folk.

In no particular order:

RSS Feeds – I use a RSS-to-email service to get feeds directly to my inbox


My daily driver smartphone is a Nexus 5. If you don’t have a podcast app or need a recommendation for one then I would strongly suggest you check out Pocket Casts – the devs are awesome, the app is awesome, Chromecasting podcasts is awesome and their online web-player is awesome.

In no particular order:

  • Jupiter Broadcasting in general have some really good podcasts. I mostly listen to TechSNAP and Tech-Talk-Today
  • Security Now by Leo Laporte and Steve Gibson is generally good. I don’t listen to it as much as I used to (mainly because of how much time is spent talking about ads and off-track topics) but you will find some decent content every now and then
  • Crypto-Gram is an audio of Bruce Schneier’s newsletter


Resources that don’t fit in any of the above categories.
