15 Useful Free Android Apps for Web Developers

We are not suggesting for a moment, with this post, that your Android mobile device would be a good alternative as a development platform to your desktop or laptop. All it shows with the current apps available, that it could be and the potential for more is certainly there. Maybe not so much with a mobile, but if you have one of the many iPad-a-like Android tablets that are currently available it certainly could be a reality.

The apps that you will find below have not been designed to be an alternative mobile solution to typical development desktop software, but are, in there own right, really handy apps to have when you are out and about and on the move. You just never know when you will be struck with a dev idea or are suddenly struck with a code solution, and these apps have enough functionality to write and test and your inspired code ideas.

9 More Useful and Free Downloadable Web Design Books

A few months ago we published a popular article called 12 Useful and Free Downloadable Web Design Books, and the positive response we received from our readers was phenomenal. But, just as there is with most things, there is always room for improvement.
With the help of readers and authors we have discovered another 9 free web design books we felt were worthy enough to bring to your attention, you will find these book below.

Just as with the previous Free Web Design Book Article, I have not offered a critique of each book, as I feel that would not be fair on the author. If an author spends so much of there valuable time (in some cases months and months) and writes a detailed book on web design, in my eyes they deserve only praise and appreciation. I hope you find these books useful.

Data Structures and Algorithms

Data Structures and Algorithms
Author: Granville Barnett and Luca Del Tongo.
About the Book: Put simply this book is the result of a series of emails sent back and forth between the two authors during the development of a library for the .NET framework of the same name. The conversation started of something like "Why don't we create a more aesthetically pleasing way to present our pseudocode?" After a few weeks this new presentation style had in fact grown into pseudocode listings with chunks of text describing how the data structure or algorithm in question works and various other things about it. At this point we thought, "What the
heck, let's make this thing into a book!"
