36 Best Frontend Web Development Tutorials of 2012




The task of learning new development techniques is often arduous and time-consuming. It used to be that web developers would purchase books or read guides written by other developers. Nowadays you can find tons of new blog posts and tutorials written every week! Not to mention all the personalized tutorials on YouTube and similar video hosting networks.

For this collection I have put together 36 of my personal favorite tutorials from the year 2012. These tutorials mostly focus on web techniques such as dynamic banners, navigation menus, photo slideshows, and form input effects, among many others.
