This is sooooo good, more than I can put into words. Michael basically holds your hand the whole way and slowly adds in pieces as you go. This is great for someone like me who doesn't have a cs background and new to backend technologies.

There is a free html book but I opted for the screencast and IMO it was worth every dollar. It really feels like he is sitting next to you, guiding you along.

I Do agree : ) That's the first tutorial I ever learned from. In fact, it's so good that I don't think I ever finished watching it, because I got what he was saying so clearly and started working right away on my own projects.

Tutorials are any resources you learn from.

Examples: an intro to html5 screencast, a pdf about git, photoshop effects tutorials, meta-programming in ruby, lambda calculus, higher-order fixed-point combinators.

Tools are websites, apps or services used -on- your project (indirectly), to aid the process.

Examples: A color scheme generator, email marketing software, usability heat maps, css3 code generators, a downloadable png compressor.

Assets are downloadable files used -in- your projects, usually as code, textures, or images.

Examples: a jquery sticky menu, photoshop brushes, background textures, mvc frameworks, twitter bootstrap, 960 grid system.
