The folks at Opera have just released their Web Standards Curriculum, an online course on building web products using web standards. The curriculums covers a range of topics: from explaining what the web is to building state-of-the-art applications.
Education is an important part of the process with any technology. The Web Standards Curriculum serves as a course to teach people how to create web sites that adhere to the standards that exist for the Web and following best practices like unobtrusive scripting and progressive enhancement. Written by some of the leading experts in the field it covers all of the subjects you need to get a head start in web development.
Many of my colleagues at Yahoo such as Christian Heilmann, Mark Norman Francis and Ben Hawkes-Lewis have been involved in writing this curriculum. At Yahoo we believe that web standards are vital to a vibrant developer community. We want to provide the most accessible, cross-browser compatible sites possible and web standards gives us the tools to do that.
Whether you are an educator or simply a developer looking to learn a little more the Web Standards Curriculum comes highly recommended. The curriculum is licensed with Creative Commons, so there is no problem with using it in your company.
