It was 2 years ago when I decided to start a website that teaches others how to do web related things. When thinking of a name It was very difficult to come up with a good name that was not already taken by someone else. I started Webdevtuts(Web development tutorials) to help others who were struggling with tools like photoshop or dreamweaver or just coding in general. When I first started designing and coding at the age of I had a ton of questions that I would ask friends, people on forums and no one really seem to give me straight forward answers. Questions I had for others were, How do you create a website?, What tools do you use to create a website?, How do I take a design from photoshop and turn it into an actual website?. To provide myself with the answers for my questions I spents hours, days, months, and years learning the technquies and tools needed to create a website. Once I learned enough I decided I wanted to give back to web community by helping inspiring web developers, and designers. Over the last 2 years of running Webdevtuts I have learned alot and am very appreitive of what has happen to me. I am excited to have stuck to something and comited to something this long. I guess its true if you love something then it is not really work. Its been a good 2 years and I hope there are many more to come. Thanks for the support and I hope to bring you more rocking tutorials this year and years to come.
Our New Design
I cannot tell you how many times I have changed the design of Webdevtuts over the last two years. I think its been mostly about finding what best fits Webdevtuts. If you can tell the new version has alot of playful colors and if you are using a moderen broswer you will notice the css3 gradients and transitions. I thought it would be cool to use new web standards and push others to as well oppose to using the simple and same old effects or design.
