Iam switching roles at work soon and had to document everything I do for the next person. I have no idea if the next person will be a web developer or not. So I added a few links for them to use to my Getting Started doc. I figure I should post them here as well. Keep in mind I used Ruby, Rails, and some PHP for my old position.
- Use to mark the layout of web documents
- W3.org or search google
- Use to style HTML documents
- Used for dynamic parts on the web (Filters, Animations, Popups, AJAX)
- Lots of examples on the internet
- Mozilla JS Guide
- jQuery and jQuery UI
- Ruby on Rails
- A ruby web framework with Model View Controller (MVC) structure
- Documents is great and web community is large. You can find examples of almost everything on google.
- PHP used the same way as ruby is. Good for simple quick web pages with integrated access to MySql.
- Pretty good documentation with good examples in the comments
Other good links:
- A List Apart - Pretty much everything here is good
- JSBin - used to test js in the browser
- Twitter - follow any kind of web developer you can find
- People will answer questions and post new trends for development all the time
Side note: I am moving on to be a Web Developer at Cerner. I will be working on an assortment of Personal Health type websites. Looks like most of the use Python and Django.
