This section is a repository of links to various web sites that we feel are of importance for web application development. This list is a work in progress and does not hope to be exhaustive. If you think that some links are missing or broken don't hesitate to contact us.

Some very long URLs might be troncated on the display but they should remain active. In such a case and if you need to know the complete URL, click on the link and copy it from the address bar of the new window.

At the top right column, you can find shortcuts to the different topics. At the end of each section you will find a "back to top" link to come back to the top of this page.
