I have compiled a list of some handy resources that I use frequently in my daily life. I hope that you find these useful in your projects as well. I will be adding to this page as I find useful resources; if you have any you would like me to add, fire off a reply and I’ll take a look.
[Link] WC3 Validator – A must-have for testing public-facing websites for HTML compliance issues. If you’re having weird display issues with your site, this is a good place to start.
[Link] Stack Overflow – If you haven’t stumbled onto this site via google yet, this is the ultimate Q&A for anything programming.
[Link] jsFiddle – This tool is great for sharing code snippets with other developers, especially when you’re having a problem. If you’re going to post a question on stack overflow, put it on jsFiddle first and then link it so that others can quickly see the problem in real time.
[Link] jQuery UI Icons – A simple page with the jQuery UI icons loaded into buttons. I kept googling for the icon list and this kept coming up, so I bookmarked it!
[Link] jQuery UI Effects – This is easy enough to look up online, but once you get hooked on putting effects on EVERYTHING, it helps to keep a link to it handy.
[Link] CSS Selectors – Can’t remember the difference between
[attribute$=value]? Here’s a nice chart to keep it all straight.
[Link] Git – Git is a wonderful piece of software, but sometimes you need help on remembering which command arguments to use.
[Link] jQuery CDN Links – If you have a public-facing website with jQuery, hosting on a Content Delivery Network is a great way to reduce bandwidth to your server and speed up page loads, since CDNs deliver content regionally based on the requester’s location.
