Web Design Development Tutorials

Yesterday I introduced my design team and mentioned I didn’t really have any design talent. WebDesignDev has plenty of tutorials and articles dedicated to web design.

Web Design Dev

Web Design DevWebDesignDev was created by Michael Dunlop who also blogs at Retire at 21 (read our review here). When I first looked at Web Design Dev I wasn’t too impressed until I started going browsing.

With nearly 1,000 rss feed readers, this website is very complete. There aren’t very many tutorials (about 30) but the ones that are there are very detailed. They are all thorough with screenshots, which is something I think is important when trying to teach someone something. You can read tutorials on creating flash websites, photoshop, and dreamweaver.

I think I am most impressed with their create a website page. Its the ultimate guide for creating a website, from buying the domain name and hosting to actually marketing the website. That page could be a website by itself.

Update Me

From the website to the forum, it needs updating. The last tutorial was posted July 22nd and several of the forum topics are a month old. It seems whatever initial buzz this site received is now gone and needs a pick me up.

With the web developement category with only one post, I think this site has great potential to opening up their reviews a bit toward Wordpress theme installation and editing as well as more. Some themes are already visual enough you don’t need to design your own. It could really open it up as not only a web design resource, but ultimately a top blogging resource.

Submit Your Tutorials

A cool option that WebDesignDev offers is submitted your own tutorial, you can even get paid for it.

Write a tutorial for WebDesignDev and get paid $100 per tutorial published! Learn more…

Before you write your tutorial make sure to contact Michael that this offer is still valid. Not a bad way to make $100.
