  1. All those websites can make me a Web Designer? Can you show me the websites that can make me dinner, I’m kinda hungry.
    .-= Jason´s last blog ..Everything You Wanted To Know About DOCTYPE =-.

  2. I would say HTML dog should be in that list. It was a great help when i started learning html and css. Thanks for the other links though will have a look.

    • To say the truth I am very impressed by what you told. You share tons of interesting info, neat and excellent design you’ve got here. It’s certainly one of the most informative stuff on this topic I’ve ever read.

  3. Some old favorites I hasn’t visited in a while… may seem a little outdated…
    .-= How to conceive a girl´s last blog ..Affordable baby gender test =-.

  4. Well…maybe and maybe not.

    I think this is an impressive list and it does point beginners in helpful and educational directions…but…will these sites make you a good web designer? I think they’ll give you a start.

    Web design is more than just technical tricks and knowing where to find the flashiest templates and plug-ins. It’s design after all. If it was something you could just pick up from online lessons and e-books we wouldn’t need design colleges and graphic design studios. Anybody could do it.

    Now I know I’m being nit-picky and all ‘grumpy old man’, but it just rubs me the wrong way when I meet some ‘designers’ who read a book once (or a website) and decide to hang out a shingle. I mean, if it’s so easy, why did I bother getting a degree?

    OK – tantrum over. Interesting list, and a good start. Don’t worry savedelete, we’re still BFF.

  5. Those listed above are great resources for web development, and I remember very fondly spending hours and hours each day on Web Monkey. However, the key to a good website is knowing your audience. Once that is firmly established, the contents, layout and design will follow instinctively.

  6. W3schools should be the base.
    But if you want to become a good designer you need many hours of practice.

  7. Those are some good tips. Personally I’m a BIG fan of W3Schools as well. I’d like to tip some personal websites as well, such als zeldman.com or 456bereastreet.com. These are weblogs of highly regarded webdevelopers. It can be really useful to list those as well, right?

  8. Hi

    Good list.. I’ve been developing sites for years and still refer to W3Schools for some CSS parameters that I forget.

  9. Great article! I would like to hear from individuals who have used the above applications? I am just beginning to consider do my own website just for personal thrill, but which application do I use to assist in the development?

  10. excellent resource this list in this article, weldone guys.
    yea, i would add too htmldog.com such a great markup reference library in comparison with w3schools for example.
    thanks.

  11. I’m not using A List Apart and few others, echoecho instead makes my job lot easier, same if w3school. Overall, a great list, lots of good tutorials and stuff for designers.

  12. Great list for beginners and even intermediate developers. I remember the good old days when all we had for design assistance was web monkey and a tattered copy of the latest O’reilly tome. Amazing how fast the business has changed – and expanding in some many new directions!

  13. I thought about Article Promotion, Is it Really Worth it? | Creativeoverflow and found this post. Thanks for sharing!

  14. Nice links! I would definitely recommend jQuery as well. Love the tutorials on it, though I have to be honest: I’ve recently bought some jQuery books and I’ve learnt much more from them. Just reading and trying out some code examples at the same time: works great for me.

  15. It is nice to find a site about my interest. My first visit to your site is been a big help. Thank you for the efforts you been putting on making your site such an interesting and informative place to browse through. I’ll be visiting your site again to gather some more valuable information. You truly did a good job.
