Web Design Portfolio

Posted by tment894 on November 29, 2007

If any of you are contemplating a career in web development, it is a must to have a Web Design Portfolio to show off your skills.  Here are two nice websites that show you how to create one, and they give great tips on how to get started.

Web Standards Checklist

Posted by tment894 on November 29, 2007

I found a Web Standards Checklist that lists a lot of important items that MUST be addressed on every site that you develop to be standard-compliant.  It shows the breadth of web standards, is a handy tool for developers during the production phase of websites, and is an aid for developers who are interested in moving towards web standards.

Web Standards

Posted by tment894 on November 29, 2007

The Ten Reasons to Learn and Use Web Standards site explains the top ten reasons why you should learn and use web standards when creating websites.  I thought this site gave good pointers, and it summarizes what we have learned thus far in the WEBT143 class.

I also found an article titled “Developing with Web Standards.”  This article gives some recommendations and best practices for creating standard-compliant websites, showing how to separate structure ((X)HTML) from presentation (CSS).  This article also sums up everything we have learned in the WEBT143 class thus far.  I found this article to be very useful, and I will refer to it in the future.

MIMIC

Posted by tment894 on November 20, 2007

When searching for how to create accessible websites, I came across a website called Mimic, which shows how any webpage will look on a mobile device. If the page is highly accessible, it will probably be nicely readable on a cell phone or handheld device. I found this site to be quite fascinating and thought I would share it with everyone else. Try it out!

Web Design

Posted by tment894 on November 20, 2007

I found three web pages that I thought had useful information to consider when creating websites – effective websites, that is. I thought this information would be helpful for the WEBT143 final project.

CSS Layout Techniques

Posted by tment894 on November 12, 2007

This CSS Layout Techniques website contains links to CSS techniques, resources and tutorials. It gives examples of how to layout webpages using CSS and provides the code to create such layouts (which are free to use). These layouts might give those in WEBT143 some ideas of how to layout their website for their final project. There are also many resources and tutorials which I found to be quite useful.

Preview Your Website in a Variety of Browsers

Posted by tment894 on November 5, 2007

The website, Browsershots, lets you see how your website will look in a variety of browsers for Linux, Windows, and Mac OS by means of a screenshot. I found it to be helpful because I can see how my websites will display in different browsers and in different versions of those browsers. I thought others would find this site useful as well.
