Introduction to Website Development/APIs & Webservices

The Web Development resources focus on ASP, .NET (ASP/VB/C#) and PHP as server side programming languages (sorry not much JSP, JAVA, PERL or oldskool C++ CGI).

Also Phython, Coldfusion and Ruby on Nails are only minimal covered. I also focus on Client Side Scripting via Javascript, CSS, DHTML and XML.

Resources to Frameworks like AJAX and the Dot NET Framework can be found as well as resources for some open source solutions like Wiki's, CMS, Office Tools and Spell Checkinng. One of the best covered areas are online API's and Web Services. I also have some Potcasts and of course print magazines and Book Recommendations.

Database Development Resources for MySQL and MS SQL Server can be found at my separate Database Development Resources Page.
