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).
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.

Note: As of December 5, 2006 does Google not issue any new SOAP Search API keys to anybody. This forces the unfortunate ones that did not acquire a key early enough to scrap Google search results. You might want to consider to use this special Google search version without Ad's and clutter for easier parsing.
