Never Stop Learning

In this industry, we ALL need to keep learning and solving problems as they arise. Often the best thing to do is to Google or Bing the exact thing you are looking for. However…be sure to check the dates on how-to’s, information and tutorials, and know that not all are correct and/or accurate. Although broad sweeping in their scope, here are a few reliable resources:

  • Treehouse: For learning all things web. Reasonably priced.
  • Code School. If you don’t like the goofy videos of Treehouse, you may prefer Code School. And it’s free!
  • W3schools: The authority on learning web standards.
  • Video Co-Pilot: Special effects with After Effects.
  • Adobe: Lot’s of examples and tutorials for each adobe tool.
  • Adobe Devnet: Some Dreamweaver tutorials and a general resource with discussion boards for asking questions.
  • Lynda.com Well known video tutorials, albeit not free.
  • Friends of Ed: A site for education & technology. Some free.
