  5. Abdussalam Says:

    Hi,

    @Lailson Bandeira! Thanks for the advice. I took screenshots for most of the documents and the documents themselves were mostly pixelated. That could have been the reason for the blurred output.

    @Romain! Thanks for the mention. The link has been updated.

    The grid pdf website was an awesome suggestion.

    I use art directors tool kit to create grids for my designs and technically I could simply print those grids out but this website brings the grid making to a whole new level.

    nice resource round up!

    Thanks and Regards

  18. Artem Russakovskii Says:

    I was excited to see this list but I am disappointed as most of the cheat sheets are too old (like 2007). The web design evolution is very fast paced, so 2+ years is not so useful anymore.

    For example, jQuery 1.2?? 1.3 has been around for ages (including cheat sheets for it) and 1.4 just came out (I know it wasn’t out 1.5 months ago when you posted this article). CSS 3 is not mentioned anywhere either – the CSS cheat sheet is obsolete and incomplete.

    The effort is appreciated but there is much better stuff out there to link to.
    .-= Artem Russakovskii´s last blog ..Follow-up To Loading CSS And JS Conditionally =-.

  19. Abdussalam Says:

    @Artem Russakovskii
    Thanks for pointing out. I agree that some of the cheat sheets like jQuery 1.2 are old, but I have also added the latest versions to the list. CSS 3 and HTML 5 are also added.

    In fact, I would be updating the list as more stuff comes in.

  20. Mario Sánchez Says:

    Thank you very much for this compilation! It is really, really useful, I’m enjoying it a lot. Thanks! :)

  25. Ching Muzzillo Says:

    I must first confess that the data realm looks similar to a room of mirrors in view of identifying reality. There exists a lot of so called authentic data flying around around but from my personal past experience it appears to be like it is a lot of the comparable bs. I happen to have been researching for opt-in data files that I will use for message promotions in a few certain marketplace sectors but what i have got thus far look like it was clearly gathered off of internet sites. All of the information sites on the web are warm and helpful but I seem dizzy just trying to sort all through all the accounts of good personal data.

    My friend and I have been discussing personal blogs and online journaling. She feels that personal feelings and such should not expressed in such open forums. I see no problem with it. Share your thoughts:. 1. Do you blog or journal?. 2. Do you prefer face to face expression of feelings over written communication?.
