Domino Web Development JumpStart: Introduction and Primers

As I'm asked at least once a week "How can [you] get started with Domino Web Development?" - Not exactly a simple question to answer... so I thought that I would theme this week as the "Domino Web Development JumpStart" week. Each day, a new post discussing how you can get started in the Domino Web Development arena!

For our first post, I'd suggest a look at the Primer section of the Domino Web Application Development Wiki - something that I was very adamant that make it into the RedWiki in the first place.

This section, broken down further into individual technologies and principals, will give you an introduction and overview to the various tools that you will weild as a Domino Web Developer: HTML, Java, JavaScript, Styles and CSS, Web 2.0, Web Services, Web Standards, XML, XSL, and XSLT!

It's an intro, but I'm certain that it will open the eyes of novice Domino Web Developers as well as prove a quick review for us "old hands" - in fact, the XSLT work discussed there will eventually become a huge part of Project Broker!

In the next post, we'll discuss the initial architecture of a simple Domino Web application.
