This is an awesome idea! Why not add links to some commercial products like Dreamweaver (http://www.macromedia.com/software/dreamweaver/) and GoLive (http://www.adobe.com/products/golive/main.html)?

Also, Gimp (http://www.gimp.org/) is very useful for photo manipulation, as is the more professional Photoshop (http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop/main.html).

VTC has a large library of software training videos available online for $30/month. Some videos are better than others, but overall it's a good way to learn the basics of most popular apps (especially if you learn better by demonstration than by reading).

As for hosting, I'm using PowWeb for yvan256.net, never had any real problem and they're not too expensive. The storage size and bandwidth/month are extremely huge too.

This is a great sticky. I would like to pose a question to all you Web Develpers out there. I am presently looking into becoming a Web Developer/Programmer and know HTML and Javascript. Now I have been starting some PHP, however in this Web 2.o era, What do you guys recommend one's route be as far as languages/technologies are to learn?

I know there is so many web technologies out there that it gets ridiculous like Ajax, Jakarta, Python, etc. So any tips?

I used to use Cyberduck exclusively for ftp, but it has gotten bulky and unreliable. I have been using FireFTP (http://fireftp.mozdev.org/), a Firefox plugin and it has worked like a charm. Very smooth and responsive.

As for the IE 6x PNG fix issue, the coolest (and best) thing I've seen is DD_belatedPNG (http://dillerdesign.com/experiment/DD_belatedPNG/) by Drew Miller. The only PNG fix I know of that does not require a transparent GIF.

I think you might want to also include a list of opensource CMS apps, my personal favorite being Drupal (http://drupal.org).

Great stuff. Wish I had this when I started! :-)

I'm a big fan of Freeway - http://www.softpress.com/index.php
Express version is good for my needs, but the Pro version looks very comprehensive. It is similar to Rapidweaver I guess, but I much prefer its user interface. And it's made by a British company :)

When I do need to delve into the code I've been using smultron - http://www.tuppis.com/smultron/

PS Even though Cyberduck is free, I don't think it is still worth using. I couldn't get it to work reliably (multiple attempts to upload), and neither could my sister with her website. We have both now purchased Fetch and are far more sane for it!

I am a convert to Joomla and I think that anyone starting out with web design should consider using a CMS. They can be a bit daunting but if you invest a few hours getting to grips with the one you finally choose, you will be able to build great sites in no time.

This is a great place to start: opensourcecms.com (http://opensourcecms.com/)

As I said I have used Joomla to build a few sites now, so I could offer advice to anyone who wants to give it a try.

I'm sorry, my DW CS4 is expensive and buggy, so no, they're not the best combination.

Instead, get yourself GIMP and CoDA, learn to use them, and you've made enough savings for that MBP launching next year :)

It doesn't matter what application you use. A good web designer can make a good website using ANY text editor. To start:

Learn HTML and CSS: There's thousands of places. I recommend htmldog.com (http://www.htmldog.com/).
Manipulating images: I use Photoshop. Pixelmator (http://www.pixelmator.com/) is a great alternative. If you are short on cash try Gimp (http://www.gimp.org/).
Animations: Sorry flash developers but Flash sux! I have many reasons but the first it's because it kills battery life (cpu hog). That's why iPhones don't have it. Flash is widely used today because of video. Newer browsers support html5, so I think big websites like Youtube are going to push that transition (like it did with IE6). Websites (the good ones) use javascript for animation. They don't hog the cpu and are very small, specially when used in jQuery (http://jquery.com/).

Web Development tool? There's many options. The ones I tried:

- CODA (http://www.panic.com/coda/): I love it! Great user interface, It's fast, stable and complete.
- Textmate (http://macromates.com/): Probably the best code editor but I still prefer CODA.
- Dreamweaver: Adobe is adding "new features" making it bloated. Editing CSS is a nightmare and it hurt my eyes watching the default letters in code editor.
- Flux (http://www.theescapers.com/): There's a screencast in developer's website showing how easy is to create a website. I noticed when your webpage gets big, the application get a little unresponsive.
- Espresso (http://macrabbit.com/espresso/): Seems nice like CODA but I called it a beta. Check out in a year to see for an improvement.
- Rapidweaver (http://www.realmacsoftware.com/rapidweaver/): Good when you want to create a website and you have no idea how to do it. It's not expensive but you have to buy many "add-ons".

For CSS: CSSedit (http://macrabbit.com/cssedit/) is the best tool but I can do everything I want without problems in CODA.
----------------------------------------------------------

So you have plenty of options. For me CODA and Photoshop get the work done.

I am so glad I found your forum!
What amazing information and links here, thank you!

I'm pretty much a beginner at web design, I still do most of the coding myself, the basic html and the very basic css. But I am learning how to put it all together now and its amazing fun.

I use MacHighway for my web host, and I prefer Transmit, and I'm not good at Dreamweaver, though its fun to play with.
I love going thru tutorials and taking classes, being retired gives me the time to play with all of this stuff.
Learning about making Fractals at the moment, whew, thats a time sink!
My classmates and I are always trading fun ideas, and we all use Photoshop.:)

You need to mention Fugu, a free FTP client:

http://rsug.itd.umich.edu/software/fugu/

I switched from CyberDuck, which I found a little weak, to FileZilla, which I found to be ugly and information-overloaded, and then finally to Fugu, which strikes the perfect balance between power and minimalism for me. It's easy to use and uncluttered like CyberDuck, but it's got double-pane file viewing and other powerful features from something like FileZilla.

Chris at CSS-Tricks does an awesome job of teaching from beginner to advanced level web design. Tutorials like his and looking at code is how I learned. http://css-tricks.com

Another incredible resource is Preekly. These dudes make tech and how-to products that they release each week. The cool thing is that they keep the material super fresh so if you sign up for next weeks stuff, it will all be stuff that's been created in last month. http://preekly.com

An example is if you are learning HTML or XHTML now a days you don't have to learn every element. In fact learning every element right off the bat would already start most people down the wrong path. Right now all I use in HTML are the div, h1 - h6, a, p, strong, span, em, img. There may be a few more I'm forgetting, but everything else should be controlled by CSS for the most part.

I took a class with Wordpress, thats really amazing. Its a bit difficult at first, as I too am a beginner with it. But its pretty wonderful what you can do right from the beginning.

Hey. Thanks for this post. I cruise alot of POST just to see what I can find. I liked this write up you did and was just wondering if you have a subscriber page so I can link to it so I can read it at a later date? I did not see one – am I just overlooking it?

How about book recommendations?

I like "HTML & CSS (Design and Build Web Sites)" by Jon Duckett. I recently bought this book based off the strength of it's Amazon reviews, and I can only echo those sentiments. I received this book a few weeks back, and had read it through, cover to cover, in less than two weeks. This is unlike any other textbook I've used: full of colour, succinct yet sufficiently detailed, and teaching readers best practice and compatibility.

If you want a solid understanding of the core concepts of HTML and CSS, this is definitely the book to get.

This really is a great collection of links. Glad to see my fave, Dreamhost, is here! Most individuals who want websites/blogs can get by on their own with Tumblr and similar, but it's still useful to have your own domain/email (aside from gmail, hotmail, etc.), I think.

:D

Couple of days ago I came across this page, which offers a basic insight in HTML,CSS, CSS3, responsive web design, preprocessors and a little Jquery as well as code semantics and organisation.http://learn.shayhowe.com/

Definitely worth a look, if you want to get an overview what's out there.

I wonder why host gator wasn't included in the list. I like their 24/7 chat support, and they're cheap.

Loving hover.com for my domain registration

Squarespace.com is also great for quick and easy template or custom web hosting.

Both are pay of course but relatively cheap and plenty of discount codes out there to get reduced amounts.

I personally used the twit.tv ones for Macbreak Weekly (code:macbreak) and The Tech Guy (code:techguy).

Really this is a good question for beginners because you should be know about your job before doing it. Web development and designing is a good platform for e-commerce platform. You should be read tutorials regarding web development and designing and also use all resources where you can get knowledge. I saw CSS Chopper website which is the wonderful platform for e-commerce outsourcing web development business.
