Title: Webmonkey  
Author: World Heritage Encyclopedia
Language: English
Subject: Lycos, Wired (magazine), Condé Nast, World of Interiors, Condé Nast Traveller
Publisher: World Heritage Encyclopedia


Webmonkey is a popular online tutorial website composed of various articles on building webpages from backend to frontend. The site covers many aspects of developing on the web like programming, database, multimedia, and setting up web storefronts. The content presented is much like Wired magazine but for learning to design web content. Webmonkey has content applicable to both advanced users and newer internet users interested in the underlying technologies of the web. In 1999, it introduced Webmonkey Kids, a web design tutorial site for children.[1]

Webmonkey was closed in February 2004 following a round of layoffs in the U.S. division of its parent company, Terra Lycos. It was reopened later in February 2006, and mothballed again later in 2006.

In May 2008, Webmonkey was acquired by Condé Nast Publications, the company that publishes Wired magazine. It was originally reported that it would be relaunched as a wiki,[2] but it appears that this did not happen. Instead, the webmonkey website was regularly updated with new articles by Scott Gilbertson until May 2013, when it was decided to stop producing content for it.[3]

See also web monkey, a term for an amateur web designer.
