The Web Developer's Orientation Guide

Where do you go when starting out as a web developer? How do you come to understand the broad strokes of the field, or the number and context of the specialist fields within it?

Once you've taken your first steps - how do you discover what other areas there are, and into which you might want to branch out?

This section of my site aims to answer those questions.

It is not, and does not intend to be, a detailed instructional resource for each topic covered. It's an overview, a compilation of taster sessions, and a pointer to more detailed resources on each topic.

I'm adding to this section as and when I'm able.
