Great Web Resources

Web Resources

Great web resources are important and I recently gave a guest lecture and am now teaching a class where I am trying to make sure I get this point across; in the course of my interaction with the students, I’ve tried hard to instill in them three key points:

  1. Open Source is awesome; use what’s online, give credit, share and when you’re competent enough, contribute.
  2. Confidence; don’t be scared of code, don’t be scared of mucking up an install and having to start over.  The internet is strong, you won’t break it.
  3. The information you seek is out there!  This is the key.  The web development and design community is big, not only on open source, but also on sharing their techniques, theories, ideas and concepts.  So get online and learn to execute great searches.

As I explained and advocated this third point, I added in that a great way to do keep abreast of this information is to be proactive and keep track of some of the great and useful blogs out there.  So the obvious question arose: “What are they?”

Here’s my list of useful sites that are always distributing great new concepts, advice and tutorials. (In alphabetical order.)
