There is some amazing stuff out there on the Web–resources, tools, tricks, and tips. Problem is, as a Web developer, you spend so much of your time just keeping up with new technologies - learning, playing – and this doesn’t leave much time to go hunting for the latest and greatest tool, or for a better way of doing things.

So we’ve put together a list of over 100 resources to help make your life as a developer easier; where to find snippets of code, sites that automate processes, cheat sheets, lessons, useful tools and a couple of silly videos to give your brain a break if you make it through to the end.

    I did notice that Inkscape wasn’t included as a companion to the GIMP. Sorry for the nitpick because this is really a great list.

    Jon - not nitpicky - good call; I missed it - thanks! Check out graphics now… :)

  3. 4 March 2008 8:22

    Wow! Lid. You’re incredible! Is that you on the photo? ;-) No, I mean the list. Thank you for including me! There is one small mistake in it: Its http://feedjumbler.com/ NOT Feedburner.

  4. Lid
    4 March 2008 8:43

    Tad - Yep, but on an off day ;) - No…alas, not me - although I am very envious :)

    You are welcome for including you - mistake fixed - sorry, in my excitement (and lack of caffeine) I kept seeing how you pulled in everyone’s feed from Feedburner and it stuck in my head. I LOVE this…

    Any reason why you don’t call Prototype and Noodleinicident, etc., by their names? Also, it’s not Lightbox, it’s lightbox2 (lb2) … I stopped reading there.

    #100 domain hacks, I never was a fan of domain hacks. I find its better to find a domain you can remember. bustaname.com does a good job with this. If not that, then sedo.com is a good resource for buying old domains.

  8. Lid

    Pretty handy list, thanks for compiling it!

  14. 4 March 2008 17:28

    This is a great list for Web Developers! No doubt, most of them are definitely written for PHP web developers, but I do find a lot more interesting tools, such as finding if your site is banned by Google, etc.

    Once again, great list. I’ll definitely have it bookmarked and access it at a later time when I need to revamp my site(s).

  15. 4 March 2008 18:13

    To catch immediate attention of the typical attention deficient web surfer overwhelmed by the billions of blogs, you put an attractive girl at the top. I like your style.

    I love this list, it’s staying in my bookmarks forever. And I just thought I could add a site for the statistics, http://getclicky.com It’s really awesome and has a ton of features, And it even has a page before you sign up that compares itself with some of the other big statistics websites. The one thing I love about it is the LIve view. It actively (with ajax i’m assuming) updates the live page with hits to your site. You can click on IP’s and name them, so you can name yourself or your friends. You can also set it up so it doesn’t count hits from your computer (which I’m assuming most stats can do, but this one does it with cookies, which is kind of annoying, but useful if you work on different computers, or at a friends house)

    Again thanks for this great list!

    Beware anyone who attempts to sign up to Media Max, as recommended here in the file storage section. They are a SCAM, and an online petition has been started to try and raise awareness about this.

    Their initial storage is free, but once you sign up they take your money and you don’t get any service.

    I paid $50.00, have never been able to upload a file, and have not had a response to any of the 32 emails I’ve sent them in the past year.

    There are also countless reports of them holding the files of ‘free’ account holders hostage (ie. not making them available for download until they become paying members).

    Save yourself the trouble and spend the money elsewhere- if you want confirmation about anything I’m saying, just Google ‘Media Max scam’ and you’ll be greeted with the proof.

    P.S. Thanks for the rest of the list- it’s awesome! :-)

    For marketers, steer clear of

    123 Submit Pro!!!

    Website Pros

    All three SEO companies are ripp offs!

    They charge you outstanding fees and enter your website URL into all of the free directories they can get their hands on. Their service at 123 Website Submit Pro was really lousy. They even stopped their service after I complained, now I’m out of money:(

    i’ve watched that parody of the Mac… experience for years. the most amusing thing is that he is describing the windows experience and couching it in “mac.” every time it gets recycled i see windows people get all puffy and they don’t realize the joke was on them. :D

    @ Dude - and there I was thinking everyone would miss that ;)

    @ Andrew - I’m glad you find it useful. THanks for getclicky - We took a look at getclicky and we are adding it our next update.

    @ Sandra - Thanks for the media max alert. We went and checked and you seem to be right - so it is off the list! Watch out for a post Mad is putting together about online storage in the next few days - we’ll replace it. :)

    @ KC - thanks for sharing - I’d love to know what other people think

    @ repalmer - no matter which way you look at it, it’s still funny :)

    @ Jonathan - We are happy to give you a rest ;) - and thank you

    @ Nathan - Thanks! - Love to know what you’re teaching

    @ Rishil - Great Tips - Thank you - will be added in next update :)

    @ Rich - thanks - love your site - had to remove the second link though - sorry :)

    @ ErisDs - Thanks for the tip, we’ll take a look!

    @ John Blackmore - Thank you. It took FOREVER ;) - so we are glad you like it.

    @ Dave - smashupgraphics looks quite cute - in next update :)

    @ Diane - Probably should include jQuery - Thanks!

    @ Peter T - Thank you, and you are very much welcome.

    @ Geoserv - Thank you - now that’s pretty cool - newsdots…

    There are 5 houses in five different colors

    In each house lives a different nationality.

    These 5 owners drink a certain beverage, smoke a certain brand of cigar and keep a certain pet.

    No owners have the same pet, smoke the same brand of cigar, or drink the same beverage.

    The CLUES:

    The Brit lives in the Red house.

    The Swede keeps dogs as pets.

    The Dane Drinks tea.

    The Green House is on the left of the White House.

    The Green House’s owner drinks coffee.

    The person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds.

    The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill.

    The man in the center house drinks milk.

    The Norwegian lives in the first house.

    The man who smokes Blends lives next to the one who keeps cats

    The man who keeps horses lives next to the man who smokes Dunhill.

    The man who smokes Blue Master drinks beer.

    The German smokes Prince.

    The Norwegian lives next to the Blue House.

    The man who smokes Blends has a neighbor who drinks water.


    Who owns the fish?
