    For javascript I didn't find webmonkey all that useful when I was learning it. I prefer

    www.webreference.com
    www.w3schools.com //the ultimate reference site
    www.webmasterbase.com //for advanced oop


    Those are three more you should look into.

    Lightbulb Useful Perl resources

    Perlmonks:
    http://www.perlmonks.org/
    Tutorials
    Questions and Answers
    Super Search
    Book and Module Reviews

    Comprehensive Perl Archive Network (including Search documentation for all standard Perl modules):
    http://cpan.org/

    O'Reilly's Perl homepage:
    http://perl.com/

    The standard Perl documentation, online:
    http://perldoc.com/

    http://groups.google.com/ lets you get at the Usenet archives, which have over 3 million articles on Perl.

    I'm told http://learn.perl.org/ is good for beginners.

    Books:
    Everyone programming Perl needs a copy of the Camel Book, "Programming Perl", by Larry Wall et al, ISBN 0596000278. You need this as a reference book, but I wouldn't advise learning Perl from it. For that, you need "Learning Perl", by Randal Schwartz and Tom Phoenix, ISBN 0596001320 (the Llama book).

    Randal Schwartz also has an archive of his column for Web Techniques, online here: http://www.stonehenge.com/merlyn/WebTechniques/

    CGI:
    Perl scripts used for the Web are called CGI scripts. The book you need is "CGI Programming with Perl" by Scott Guelich et al, ISBN 1565924193 (the Mouse book) .

    Don't go anywhere near any of the "learn Perl in 2 minutes for dummies" type books, they're mostly pretty poor.

    A chap called Ovid has written an online CGI programming course which I'd recommend highly, you can find it here:
    http://www.easystreet.com/~ovid/cgi_course/

    If you want to do really serious web programming with mod_perl and Apache, then this book is excellent: "Writing Apache Modules with Perl and C", by Lincoln Stein and Doug MacEachern, ISBN 156592567X (the Eagle book).

    If you want to *really* understand regular expressions - and they're very powerful - then have a read of "Mastering Regular Expressions" by Jeffrey E.F. Friedl, ISBN 1565922573 (the Owls book). Absolutely one of the best technical books I've ever read. He explains this complicated subject in great depth, and with real clarity.

    All the above books are from O'Reilly, but Manning also have a couple of useful Perl books, including Object Oriented Perl (http://www.manning.com/Conway/) by Damian Conway (http://www.yetanother.org/damian/) and Data Munging with Perl (http://www.manning.com/cross/) by Dave Cross (http://www.dave.org.uk/) of london.pm (http://london.pm.org/).

    Oh, forgot to mention, there's an international chain of user groups called Perl mongers, http://www.pm.org/ who meet in pubs and have drinks and things.

    That lot should keep you going for a bit.

    Andy.

    Trulent, it would be useful if you could edit your original post merging all of these things.

    Also, since this thread was started there have been more than a dozen such guides written across SitePoint. You might want to link to them instead of maintaining a separate list. This way we are only maintaining one (which is always good) set of lists on a given topic

    Best book titles on CSS:

    Sams Teach Yourself CSS in 24 Hours (not likely, but still, I really can't wait to get me teeth stuck into this excellent book).
    By Kynn Bartlett

    Cascading Style Sheets : The Difinitive Guide (edition recently updated, I think?)
    By God, er, I mean Eric Meyer

    Eric Meyer on CSS, by you know who. Not only is this book instructive in the extreme, but its pages are also beautifully laid out. Actually, I reackon the book itself is a work of art.

    More Eric Meyer on CSS

    Newish title by Eric Meyer following on from his last success.

    ISBN: 0735714258; Published: Apr 8, 2004; Copyright 2004;
    Dimensions 8" x 10" ; Pages: 304; Edition: 1st.

    Make sure your site is semantically pure!

    Make sure your site is semantically pure!

    Semantics: The study of meanings.
    The historical and psychological study and the classification of changes in the signification of words or forms viewed as factors in linguistic development.
    A branch of semiotic dealing with the relations between signs and what they refer to and including theories of denotation, extension, naming, and truth.

    Reaserch

    Do you know any references on research in webdesign?

    I'm planning a rich content site and I need to do some reaserch on content and usability.

    I found something on useit.com and in IBM Webdesign Guidelines. Do you know any other useful resources? It will be helpful if they were very cler about the methodology/ procedures.

    Thanks!
