9rules Round 3

Published in 9 Rules on Tuesday, November 8th, 2005

Another round of submissions is coming on November 14th for the 9rules network.

If you have a website, great content, and want to become part of a network that has a great community and a lot to offer, head on over and submit your site to round three starting on November 14th.

From Colin:

Get your sites ready for next Monday, and I have a hint for you that might help you get into this round. Take a look at our homepage and browse some of our “keywords” on the bottom of the page. If you see a keyword that your site fits into, and you see that the 9rules Network only has one or a few sites within that topic, you should definitely submit.

While you are waiting, clean up your site and have a play with the Web 2.0 validator, fun stuff.

SiteUptime Web Site Monitoring Service

Sitepoint's web devlopment books have helped me out on many occasions both for finding a quick solution to a problem but also to level out my knowlegde in weaker areas (JavaScript, I'm looking at you!). I am recommending the following titles from my bookshelf:

The Principles Of Successful Freelancing

I started freelancing by diving in head first and getting on with it. Many years and a lot of experience later I was still able to take away some gems from this book, and there are plenty I wish I had thought of beforehand. If you are new to freelancing and have a lot of questions (or maybe don't know what questions to ask!) do yourself a favor and at least check out the sample chapters.

The Art & Science Of JavaScript

The author line-up for this book says it all. 7 excellent developers show you how to get your JavaScript coding up to speed with 7 chapters of great theory, code and examples. Metaprogramming with JavaScript (chapter 5 from Dan Webb) really helped me iron out some things I was missing about JavaScript. That said each chapter really helped me to develop my JavaScript skills beyond simple Ajax calls and html insertion with libs like JQuery.

The PHP Anthology: 101 Essential Tips, Tricks & Hacks

Like the other books listed here, this provides a great reference for the PHP developer looking to have the right answers from the right people at their fingertips. I tend to pull this off the shelf when I need to delve into new territory and usually find a workable solution to keep development moving. This only needs to happen once and you recoup the price of the book in time saved from having to develop the solution or find the right pattern for getting the job done..
