Favorite Web development resources
An assignment in my Intro to Web Design and Development class is to "Find Web resources on web development and design." Seeing as this is an intro course, I haven't really accumulated a lot of reliable resources yet. I could google and make a list of links, but I thought I would ask some developers instead. What are your favorite Web resources for Web development?
I use only 4 things:
1) The PHP manual
2) The MySQL manual
3) The w3c website
4) The addedBytes regular expression cheat sheet.
I also use, when necessary, the docs for whatever I happen to be working with, like the symfony2 docs, propel docs, and a site that has examples of all the jquery selectors because I can't remember that syntax to save my life

If you want some shortcuts to creating great sites, depending on the type of site, pick a CMS (like Wordpress) and become very comfortable with it.

Following on what jorgecook said above, pick something with great documentation and a solid community (Django is my recommendation for tooth-cutting) and dig in deep like a tick. You'll eventually realize that nothing is perfect (not even Python/Django/Postgres, though they make for excellent role models) and that development is about manifesting your design vision into a working thing that people can actually use, and that involves picking the right tools for the job.
I think this concept is a bit stronger in the Django community than most other web communities, and so recommend it (the IRC channel, the main docs, the source itself, etc.) as a starting resource strongly. Many communities have a strong aversion to recommending other frameworks/languages/platforms even when their own really doesn't fit the job at hand, but I don't see this manifesting (as much) in Djangoland.
Anyway, I reckon forums.devshed.com and stackexchange.com are probably pretty darn good resources (along with your favorite web search engine, of course).
