This web roundup will list nine developers that absolutely must be tracked on Twitter. They represent the best of the best and are extremely active in the community. Be sure to follow each and every one of them. They might even help you if you've hit a bump in your coding! By the time you're through with this list, you'll probably think, "Why didn't he include this person!". Well be sure to leave a comment with those that I left off.

  • Eric Meyer

    Few web developers are unfamiliar with this name. In fact, the first CSS book that
    yours truly ever read was written by this man - "Eric Meyer on CSS". For the two
    readers in the dark, Eric Meyer is best known for his web standards work and for
    the many books that he has written over the years - most notably on Cascading Style
    Sheets. Currently, Eric works as a consultant for Complex Spiral Consulting.

    NETTUTS focuses on jQuery a great deal. Why shouldn't it? It is easily the most
    popular Javascript framework available; no doubt due to its wonderful implementation
    of CSS selectors. Are you familiar with its creator? Meet John Resig. He's a young
    and brilliant man living in Boston. He is currently working for Mozilla.

    Andy is a web developer based in The United Kingdom, and is currently the director
    of "Clear Left". If I could name only one book that taught me more than
    any other, it would be "CSS Mastery" - written by Andy. If you haven't read it yet,
    I 100% recommend it! He is a big advocate for the web standards project and speaks
    at conferences around the world.

    In his own words - "I am a web designer and developer living and working in Seattle,
    WA. I am employed full-time by Blue Flavor, a design agency specializing in standards-based
    design and development for the web and mobile web. In addition to being a full-time
    designer, I occasionally author books on web design, speak at conferences, and blog
    at jeffcroft.com."

    For those interested, I highly recommend that you purchase Jeff's (co-written with
    Dan Rubin) book, "Pro CSS Techniques".

    Collis and Cyan Ta’eed: www.envato.com

    People like these two make me feel like a failure. While I consider the
    year a success if I'm able to redesign my blog once or twice, Collis and Cyan, at
    least it seems, somehow manage to crank out site after incredible site! Fastly and
    surely, their sites are becoming the premier resource for developers, designers,
    engineers...just about anything! They are currently opening the beta version of
    "ThemeForest". Click on the "Envato Network" button at the top right portion of
    this page to switch between sites. P.S. Are you followingNETTUTSon Twitter as well?
