Welcome to the place where people like
you have been coming since 1996 to learn how
to build the Web. Whether you've worked your
way through the beginner and builder ranks
and now you're ready to pick up some new, sasquatch-hairy skills, or you're just bored
and looking for a time-suck toy to tinker
So you already taught yourself how to say
"hello world" with IIS, ASP, .NET, and PHP —
in fact, you've tattooed your favorite
server-side scripting language right there
on your bicep. And of course you're
responsible for a fleet of databases. But do
you have a server of your very own? Not even
a Mac OS X box? Tsk, tsk!
Build Your Own
If you're a DIYer who likes getting your
hands wet and your feet dirty, try a
from-scratch audio recording station on for
size. Next, sic yourself on a Web casting
system. Then get really down to the ground
and build your own computer.
In the Alphabet Soup
Have you been minding your P's and Q's? How
about XML? P3P? Ever turned SMIL
upside-down? How about XSS? Really? I don't
believe you — a Monkey made up that last
Been That, Done There?
We're sorry if all of this is old-hat. (Are
you sure? You've even earned your serif
badge meddling around with fonts? Man,
you're good.) Well at least you can keep our
"Quick Reference" section warming up on deck
— no matter how advanced you are, you'll
always need color codes, a browser chart,
and special characters close at hand.
And who knows? Maybe our latest offerings
will reveal something new even to you.
