Web Development Tutorials

W3 Schools
W3 Schools contains mostly basic, but very well written and easy to understand tutorials. On the site you will also find full references of all popular programming languages and technologies. There are also quizzes, examples and validators. It is really an awesome resource

Developer Tutorials
A large depository of developer tutorials, some of them quite advanced

Skye Tutorials
A small site containing few good tutorials on various topics


Web Design Tutorials

Good Tutorials
The best resource for Photoshop tutorials. Organized in categories, with user ratings, pictures and screenshots.

The Site Wizard
The site wizard has a lot to offer and their design section is not bad too

Free Web or Blog Hosting

Blogger
The best free blog hosting service. You can create you blog, resume or portfolio completely free and get it spydered by the search engines fast

BlogEasy
Another very well set place for free blog hosting

Absolutely Free Hosting
The free hosting are not reliable and often change. That’s why I selected for you a whole directory of them

Payment Systems

PayPal
Unfortunately not available for many countries. There are some ways to use paypal even if you are not in a listed country, but they may be costly and not always 100% legal

MoneyBookers
An excellent service, but unfortunately they are too particular in accepting credit cards (which makes them not so good for your potential buyers)

E-Gold
Again a very cool service with very low prices. But funding your e-gold account is expensive which will put off your clients, unless they already use e-gold

2Checkout
The most respected CC processor accepting worldwide clients. One time fee of $59 and you are ready to go

Freelance Sites

Communication

GMail
Free and reliable e-mail system. Allows also chatting, sending files and more

Miranda
Open source program supporting all the popular instant messengers – ICQ, YIM, AIM, Jabber, IRC

Skype
Free internet telephony, allows holding conference calls. You can also call standard phone numbers for a small fee

Script Resources

HotScripts
The most popular and one of the best places for free and paid scripts – php, javascript, perl, asp, everything :-)

Script Search
Another very good portal for scripts

PHP Resource Index
A lot of PHP scripts

CGI Resource Index
And a lot of CGI scripts :-)
