I’m Chanpory, and this is my site on how to live and work better as a designer.

You should follow me on Twitter here.

For more, check out the archives.

webdev_handbook.jpgOn my way to becoming a web designer, I am constantly searching for techniques, tutorials, and other resources. The Web Developer’s handbook is a hefty database of links on a range of subjects pertinent to web development and design—all on one page.

The list is a bit intimidating at first, but you are sure to find something useful. It covers subjects ranging from daily blogs to technologies like CSS and techniques like AJAX to royalty free photo resources. I’m keeping The Web Developer’s Handbook bookmarked for handy reference.

    Wow! Thanks for linking to this. It’s like 10x the entire hard-won contents of my “Web/Admin” bookmarks folder in one URL. I’m adding it, too. Bravo!

    […] Web Developer’s Handbook es algo así como un gran parque temático o una fábrica de chocolote para los diseñadores web y gráficos. Una única página web que reúne una cuidadísima selección de herramientas web, sitios de referencia o inspiración, colecciones de tipogafías, especificaciones HTML, ejemplos y tutoriales, guías de CSS, consejos de usabilidad, galerías y mil cosas más… Tanto si eres profesional como aficionado, este web hay que mandarlo directo a nuestros favoritos, porque se convertirá en un lugar de continua consulta. @ LifeClever Imprimir    Recomendar    Feed de este post    A del.icio.us     A menéame […]

    Translation of Think Wasabi’s previous post:

    “[The] Web Developer’s Handbook is like some great thematic packet or a chocolate factory for web and graphic designers. A single web page that brings together an extremely detailed selection of web tools, reference or inspirational sites, typography collections, HTML specifications (maybe language), examples or tutorials, CSS guides, usability guides, galleries and a thousand other things… If you are a professional or an amateur, this web site ought to be added to your favorites (bookmarked), because it shall become a place (something) constantly consulted.”

    Another really good one is Blue Vertigo. BTW you called it the Web Developer’s and Web Designers Handbook.

    A fellow reader, Steve, sent us another great resource:


    Steve described it as “a handy directory of cheat sheets and quick reference guides. Although most seem to be geared to programmers, I’ve found a couple that have been handy for designers under color, html, css, etc.”
