As a designer/developer, I am addicted to high quality resources that ease what I do.

And, since 6 years, WebResourcesDepot was all about that; those beautiful, mostly free and useful resources.

The website became a huge repository of selected goodies which I hope helped and will help many designers/developers (besides me).

Many of you already know that I am also part of another project, Uptime Robot, and it is really hard to be productive with working on multiple projects.

With the new year, I’ll be working full-time on Uptime Robot and WRD now has a new owner, Brad Wayland of the inspiring¬†

Considering his expertise on content, I already know that WRD can only become better.

To keep this short, I want to thank everyone who has been a part of WRD (reader, contributor, advertiser) in all these years. I have learned a lot from it and very happy with the experience.

Wishing everyone a great new year. Bests. Umut.

WebResourcesDepot is so focused on bringing awesome web design and development resources to your attention.

Not only from the website, but the Twitter account is also another place to find exciting stuff.

However, from lots of great articles read, very useful resources discovered and lots of suggestions received each day, there are much more to share.

WebResourcesDepot Weekly

Email is old, yes, so old but an e-mail full of carefully-curated, high-quality links is so much fun.

WebResourcesDepot Weekly, a regular newsletter for web designers and developers, will be bringing this fun to your e-mail client every Monday.

Just fill the form above and you are ready to go.

P.S. As you already know, you will never be spammed and each newsletter will include an unsubscribe link.

As you already know, WebResourcesDepot uses WordPress as the blogging engine (which is clearly an awesome application).

Lately, WordPress added WRD to their showcase which features websites built with the platform and uses its functions deeply.

Rating is open to anyone and thought it would be the best if the readers who experiences WRD regularly rate us too.

WordPress Showcase

Besides that, WordPress Showcase is a great place to find inspiration on WP-built websites which are categorized well.

Thanks so much in advance for your support and being an awesome reader with your comments, tweets, suggestions and everything.

Last week, the 1000th post of WRD was announcing a huge giveaway of products/services that web designers & developers would love.

Well, yes. After the first post published at WebResourcesDepot, at least one new resource is shared everyday with no exceptions and here is the 1000th post.

Although there are more to share in our bookmarks & your suggestions eases finding new ones, it is a good idea to give a small break and celebrate this with a huge giveaway.

WRD will be running the first of the "thematic week" series (that will be published once in a few months) next week which is "E-Commerce Week".

E-Commerce Week

5 posts will be published which will be handy for anyone building their own e-commerce system or prefers a ready-to-use one (& for jQuery fans). Here they are:

Icons are great design resources which help improving the interfaces we create as they can define "what words may not".

The talented team at Iconshock, a professional icon design company, will be creating small (~5 items) but focused icon sets exclusively for WebResourcesDepot readers every month.

Iconshock Announcement

And, to decide which icon set to be created first, the best idea is: asking WRD readers to choose it.

Update: The poll is closed on 16 June 2009 and with a major difference, it seems that our first icon set will be e -commerce icons.

First of all, thanks for following WRD & contributing to it with your comments, suggestions & support.

Its been 13 months since WRD is online & it already grew so much. There are:

  • 680+ resources published
  • 10,000+ feed subscribers
  • 500,000+ pageviews per month

I’m very happy to see that WRD works well for anyone interested in design-development & it is a place to discover new stuff.

You can now follow /WRD (me) at Twitter & simply get more resources.

WebResourcesDepot at Twitter

What will I be tweeting about?

  • Extra resources that are not published at WebResourcesDepot (mostly).
  • I’m working with a small team to build few exciting projects. We use jQuery a lot & picky with UIs. Maybe tricks on these (sometimes).
  • I moved from Washington DC to Istanbul. This city is very exciting & I can tweet about it too (maybe).

To keep it short, you can click here to follow me at Twitter : ).

As you see the design of WebResourcesDepot has totally changed.

I designed this new theme believing that WebResourcesDepot needed to have an unique look (the old theme was Illacrimo theme from DesignDisease with some updates and thanks to them again) as it gets more popular everyday with 700+ RSS subscribers, 2500+ visitors and 5000+ pageviews per day.

It is much brighter right now and there is a seperation between primary elements (like categories) and 2nd ones (like search bar, rss link) that will make browsing easier.

It is also slightly shiny but not at the disturbing level (I hope).

And, since a month, WebResourcesDepot has a new owner ( me :) I’m a web developer and designer for a long time. After few corporate experiences I’ve been freelancing for the last 5 years and have few web projects of my own which I’ll be sharing with WRD readers.) generating the content and I wanted to share this with the new design.

Keep following WebResourcesDepot as I already have many great resources in my bookmarks to share and please continue suggesting the great resources you know.

And.. Did you like the new look? (There are still small things to polish which I’m working on).
