    webdesign

    This summer I'm going to set up a little webserver at home and start focussing on webdesign.

    Now my question is if anyone knows any good forums to sign up at. I'm looking for forums which are helpful, loaded with info and with a nice community. Sort of like this one, but revolving around webdesign.

    Mainly looking for php-, perl-, JS forums. Perhaps a place for the visual aspect of it all too.

    Thanks in advance

    Not quite what you were asking about but I found ActionScript.org Forums pretty useful when I was getting my head round AS3. And Stack Overflow seems to have an answer to every question which it's possible to ask.

    Re: webdesign

    Just so you know, web design refers to what you would call the "visual aspect of it." Web development refers to writing code. That should help you with posting on such forums.

    It's been several years since I regularly did this sort of thing, so unfortunately I don't know what the current places to go are. It's not a forum, but I seem to recall Jeffrey Zeldman and his A List Apart site being widely respected, at least back in the day. He co-hosts a podcast called The Big Web Show with Dan Benjamin.

    W3Schools was a site I liked for web development tutorials.

    Re: webdesign

    Web Design or Web Development?

    These are completely two different job types with different requirements.

    Will your web server be communicating outside of your network?

    If so ... make sure you do your reading both on security practices for O/S, Apache (Assuming you will be using web-server), Php Server, MySql Server and Php best practices.

    Else the outside world might have fun with it.

    These aren't forums, but good blogs I liked to look at every day:

    Smashing Magazine
    Nettuts+

    Re: webdesign

    Ye I know they're both different things, and I apologise but it's a mistake me and some of my friends make because of a class we had in school.

    I actually mean both, but more leaning towards coding. I already have some experience in php, perl and actionscript. But I know there's so much more I can learn about it, so I want to really get into it more.

    Thanks for the links I'll definitely have a look at them.

    Re: webdesign

    w3schools is great.
    http://www.w3schools.com/
    There are others too, but it depends what your doing. Php has their own forums.
    http://w3schools.invisionzone.com/ is the w3schools forums.
    sometimes I go to w3schools just to uses the tryit! page to insert my own code.
    But, thats cuz i use gedit to write most pages.

    Re: webdesign

    The best approach for people I teach is to provide them a project.

    During this project they can make use of existing open source application etc.

    IF you have a goal this will encourage a critical / strategic thinking.

    It is a common fact that people generally do not retain written material, when not used in a practical sense.

    Repetition is the most helpful tool.

    Making use of other peoples code allows you to see, how others solve common problems.

    I hope this helps.

    Re: webdesign

    For development, I tend to take questions to the devshed forums. My questions rarely go unanswered there.

    Links about webdesign, in addition to the ones mentioned above:
    (I agree with Macskeeball that "w3schools" and "A list apart" are
    very good resources)

    A little about everything (including scripts and coding):
