So far 23 articles have been published, with more than 50 planned in total. Authors contributing to this project include well-known Web developers such as Christian Heilmann and Mark Norman "Norm" Francis of Yahoo!, Peter-Paul Koch of quirksmode.org, Jonathan Lane, Linda Goin, Paul Haine, Roger Johansson of 456bereastreet, and Jen Hanen.
"Industry best practice demands standards-based Web development, but there's very little foundation-level information available for students," said Ben Buchanan, a prominent Web developer and speaker. "The average beginner tutorial is out of date and most standards-based articles are beyond beginner level. Opera's new curriculum aims to fill that gap, with a set of articles showing how to build standards-compliant Web sites from the ground up."
The Opera Web Standards Curriculum is also an ideal training course for businesses who want to promote good coding practices as well as enjoy the bandwidth savings, easier maintenance and enhanced innovation Web standards provide.
"As one of the world's premier Web technology companies, Yahoo! prides itself on following best practices and building the Web the right way to enable us to become the starting point on the Internet for our consumers," said Sophie Major, Manager, Yahoo! Developer Network International. "Therefore Yahoo! insists its employees be competent in their knowledge of Web standards. The Opera Web Standards Curriculum delivers exactly the spread of knowledge Yahoo! would expect a front-end developer to know."
