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 would start your own thread on this. You'll probably get more responses.

How about adding MAMP and XAMPP, for developers' quick and easy way of getting a server running.

MAMP
XAMPP

O-WH appears to no longer be a hosting service. You might want to take the link down unless you meant to link to "funny adult videos" ?

Great Resource!

Thanks for taking the time to put together what is probably the best single source of HTML, CSS, etc. tools anywhere.

more links

I used to use Cyberduck exclusively for ftp, but it has gotten bulky and unreliable. I have been using FireFTP, 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 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.

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

I use Eleven2.com for hosting. They've been just about fantastic. Cheap, reliable and fast response on customer service.

Just thought I'd tack this on since no one's mentioned it yet. I'd recommend them regardless, but I do have an affiliate link if you want to spread the love.

I use three different hosting services. All of them have their own plus and minus points. I choose web hosting based on how I want to use the site.

Freeway

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!
