Bookmark Bliss: The Developer Cheat Sheet Compilation

This is a post I put together a few months back for one of my friends blogs before I got started doing things myself. I guess he wasn’t much for blogging longevity and sort of gave up before he even began. Like my article on 50 sources for web design inspiration, this list comes primarily from my years of accumulated bookmarks. I think this article was a great resource though and is one I think Fuzzy Future readers will be interested in, so I decided to post it here as well so it didn’t go extinct. I’ve added some new stuff I’ve found since the original posting so hopfully this is as useful to you as it has been for me…

I know personally, I’m not one of those people that can remember every detail of every language without looking things up. It’s nice to have a cheat sheet with a quick summary of some of the most commonly used procedures, tags, tools, syntax, etc, saving time that would have been used to look it up on Google or dig through documentation either online or in printed text. The following is a list of links to several different cheat sheets on a wide variety of tasks and tools. You can print them out and hang them on your wall (my personal choice) or simply bookmark them for easy access down the road. If you have any additional suggestions or see something I’ve missed, let me know…
