If you are a aspiring web developer you should be reading Sitepoint. Lots of great examples and information. I always try to expand my knowledge base and stay current with technology. With the ever expanding scope you have to do a lot of reading and implement practical applications. I have a domain that I use just to test gems I find out there. When I run into trouble I ask people a lot smarter than me to show me the error of my ways. Sites like sitepoint help me keep up with technology. [SitePoint]
