Web (Self) Learning

Earlier today, I posted a question to twitter asking for web design tutorial/teaching site recommendations. A friend had emailed asking for some suggestions for getting up to speed in front-end development, and I realized I hadn’t looked at what’s out there in a while.

If you’re curious, here’s the list of sites I complied for him with the help from my twitter pals. It’s in no way a complete list of everything out there, but it makes for a nice curated list of places to start.

CSS and HTML Topics

css-tricks.com (The video tutorial series was highly recommended.)
thinkvitamin.com
net.tutsplus.com
A List Apart (Yes, not really tutorials, but still very valuable reading.)

Web Design Curricula

INTERact (Still in progress, but there’s some good stuff in what’s already completed.)
Opera

jQuery

learningjquery.com
jqueryfordesigners.com

Fancy/creative JavaScript Things

Grant Skinner’s Easel.js
Seb Lee-Delisle’s particles and other creative JavaScript fun

I added those last two because this list was going to someone with a pretty serious programming background. You were wondering what I was doing going from basic CSS tutorials to “make stuff fly around with Canvas” in one list, weren’t you?
