Learn PLC

well engineers will be mostly interested in this.

PLCs (or Programmable Logic Controllers) are widely used in factories, and the industrial sector.
These babies control the way the industrial process goes, they can open a valve when a button is pushed some where, they can start cooling when there is over heat, almost any thing if they were well programmed.

Even though there are more advanced versions of these PLC's such as PAC (Programmable Automation Controllers), PLC's are still somehow dominant in the industrial market.

PLCS.net  is a web site aiming to teach people even without proper background how PLC's work.



It also provides tutorials (with animation sometimes).



 

It is rather a good resource for starters anyway.

Check it out, hope it is of use to you :)

Welcome to Tech Street

That's right, Tech Street not Wall street.

Before I say any thing about this site, I must tell you that it is not a free resource, it charges you for its information.

Tech street is a resource for Industry codes and standards, you can dig for standards issued by IEEE for example.

Mainly, people working in the industrial sector or researchers working on manufacturing a certain product, and need to produce it according to certain standards, will benefit from such a site.

It also contains tools to manage the information you might need for such purposes.

Start by downloading free previews, techstreet fact sheet, or any thing you might find free :)

Control Automation INSTRUMENTATION

What makes instrumentation attractive is that it combines multiple technical fields, programming, telecom, sensors, electronics...etc.

One of the major sites was PAControl.com

It contains a lot of useful information and links along with tasty PDF's to download for free.

One thing I noticed was that the update for this site is not so frequent, yet it still contains a lot of useful information.

Graphics, Graphics, Graphics!

One of the most impressive things computers can do are related to graphics and interfaces.
In fact, computers became more popular as they developed a better graphical interface.

This site http://www.graphics.com/index.htm is dedicated to graphics, and its related topics.

Actually, the address says it all Graphics.com

I must say, I was not happy with the "Downloads" section, but the "tips" and "resources" gave me the opposite feeling :)



For website designers.

Who ever made this website he, for sure, chose a smart name for it: web-weaver

Not just a smart name, but smart content too.

Calling All Egg Heads!

Oh! so you think that you are an "Egg Head"? (if you don't know what an Egg head is, it is a way to describe a smart person, so don't be offended).

What I liked about this website is its name/domain Egg Head Cafe or http://www.eggheadcafe.com/

Primarily it's a website with articles and questions answered for .net developers.

But I can still see a corner for related content such as adobe (you might be interested in Photoshop if you are an ASP.net developer for example).

There's a corner for unanswered questions if you want to share your opinion.

One of the questions was "How to Get Your Silverlight Pages Indexed By Search Engines"

Check it out, looks useful to me :)



For Lazy Developers!

When you first look at it, this website looks more like a news site.
Yet besides all those articles you'll find blogs code snippets, and forums all concerned about ASP.net.



Don't know why they say that they are for lazy ASP.net developers???

I guess you can find out yourself :)

Sadly they did!

Digital Web magazine was one of the coolest places for web developers and designers, it had some cool articles contributed from web authors, it was like a collective information site.

The site will remain, as the webmaster stated in the daily news section on the right.

So it is still worth checking out, there are still some valuable information, and ideas to dig for in this magazine.
