    Everything you Know is Wrong!200x200
    Everything is changing. This weekend, I read a very interesting book: "Everything You Know About CSS is Wrong". The book illustrates how, now that IE has passed the ACID 2 test, we can finally begin to build our websites the proper ways. Up until now, we've been forced to implement hacks to form the perfect layout - absolute positioning, precarious floats, etc. But that's all beginning to change! I'll show you how in twenty minutes.

In this video tutorial, we're going to make an online Address Book.Read More…

    Scanning Folders with PHP200x200
    1 shares
    Let's imagine that you want to build a page that will display snapshots of your latest work. One way to do this would be to hard-code the images into your document. The obvious repercussion is that, every time you want to add a new item, you must manually update your html document. Another method would be to store and retrieve the information from a MYSQL database. This will function perfectly, though for many sites, this solution may possibly offer far more power than is technically needed - not to mention the increase in hosting costs. In such instances, the best solution is to make PHP scan your "portfolio" folder and dynamically create the code for you. If you want to update your page with a new snapshot, all that you need to do is drag the image, and its respective thumbnail, into the appropriate folders - and PHP will do the rest. Let's build it now! Read More…

    Create a Photo Admin Site Using PHP and jQuery200x200
    13 shares
    I'm pleased to present you with part one of a two part series on creating a photo site using PHP, jQuery, and AJAX. Originally, I intended to fit the entire tutorial into one screencast, but that quickly became a pipe dream as I realized that there was simply too much to cover. Nevertheless, even if you only watch this first video, you should learn a great deal. We'll be retrieving images from a database, creating a simple login form with authentication, and will then allow for our database to be asynchronously updated. Sounds good? If so, let's get into it.

    How to Read an RSS Feed With PHP - screencast200x200
    8 shares
    Back in April, Collis Ta'eed - CEO of Envato - wrote a fantastic tutorial on designing a tab structure using CSS/HTML/JS. If you haven't already, I 100% recommend that you review it. However, dynamically pulling in an RSS feed was beyond the scope of that article. In today's video tutorial, I'll show you exactly how to do this using PHP. At roughly forty-five minutes in length, you might want to take a quick "pre-screencast bathroom break". You also might want to grab some raisins. Read More…
