Webmonkey, RIP: 1996 – 2004: WebMonkey is where I learned everything I told the interviewer I knew in the three weeks between the job interview and my first day. My first relational database design came from a tutorial on this site.
Webmonkey, the site that turned humble Web developers into attention-grabbing authors, said last week it is closing down following a round of layoffs in the U.S. division of its parent company, Terra Lycos (also the parent company of Wired News). Judging by blog posts and e-mails, the site’s fans aren’t surprised. Still, they’re sad to see the end of an era.
