Want to learn XML, CSS, JavaScript, DHTML, ASP, SQL, .NET, Macromedia Flash, SOAP, or WAP? Check out the wonderfully clear tutorials at W3Schools. The site’s a bit confusing to navigate, but the tutorials are fabulous and easy to understand.

Code Complete by Steve McConnell

This book is impossible to summarize. On one hand, it’s an encyclopedia of programming practices — how to write more effective, more maintainable code (and how not to). On the other hand, it’s a practical textbook for programming in the real world, with lots of higher-level advice based on real-world experience.

Which is great. There are lots of books about how to manage a programming project, and how to organize your time, but how many books spend several pages analyzing different methods of indenting code?
