Whimsy Collective:


Great collection! Although; it be great to have the all-in-one download of ebooks (pdf) grouped or sorted in folders. Hard to tell if the entire library downloaded.

The smashing library is worth more than every web design or front-end programming related degree, way more.

These books usually pack the latest best-practice methods mixed with recent discoveries or novelties.
