37 Tested PHP, Perl, and JavaScript Regular Expressions inShare22 A regular expression, also called regex or regexp for short, is simply a piece of code that matches a pattern. Mastering regular expressions can be a difficult chore, and if you don't need them all of the time, the syntax is tricky enough to make the task frustrating or slow as you will constantly need to use a reference sheet. In order to save you time, I've compiled a list of PHP, Perl, and JavaScript regular expressions for common use cases that have been tested and are ready to go. This isn't a regular expression tutorial or even a reference; you can think of it more as a cheatsheet for when you just need the regex but don't want to put a lot of time into relearning regular expressions. If you're looking for regex tutorials or regex resources, you can find them at the end of the page as well as some additional regex resources.

Web design questionnaire: Top 10 questions to ask Today, most businesses want a website. Some already have one. Others want one. They don’t want to hire IT staff and probably can’t afford any. And in most cases, an in-house IT staff, especially for your typical small business, just isn’t necessary. What Do You Want? The first step is to decide exactly what you want on your website. * What kinds of information do you want to have on your site? * Will your site require regular updates? * Will you be engaging in e-commerce on this website? * Will you need a database? * How fast do you need the job done? * What is your budget? Start Your Search Doing a web search for someone that has the skills you will need for your website will still give you a humongous list of possible choices. Often, the web developers you are pondering are not located in your town. The first thing to do when considering a developer is to check out their website. * IS the website well-designed and attractive? * Is it easy to navigate? * Are there any broken links?

How to Really Build Backlinks and Dominate Google Without a doubt, the most frequent post request I’ve had on this site is a post about link building. I rarely take requests, simply because people rarely know what they really want until you give it to them, but this time things are a little different. First of all, I have been studying SEO day and night since I was 16 (almost 5 years ago) and I’ve ranked on the first page of Google for some of the most competitive keyphrases in the world. Therefore, I like to think I know quite a bit about the topic and can provide some insights in this space. For those of you who don’t know why links are important, let me just say that if you want to get traffic from the major search engines, they’re crucial. A large percentage of my income to affiliate sites is from traffic via Google, and the difference between ranking 2nd and ranking 1st can literally be thousands of dollars extra on my bottom line. SEO is generally divided into two parts: on-site optimisation and off-site optimisation. Be Useful

Elle apporte de grandes améliorations depuis la dernière version stable 5.02… Qu'est-ce que PluXml ?

Les fonctionnalités Il comporte globalement les mêmes fonctionnalités que les autres cms (Dotclear, WordPress, CMS Made Simple,…) : Gestion du frontend (partie publique du site) à partir d'un backend (partie administrative du site) Création et gestions d'articles, de catégories.

Demo | jQuery.popeye 2.1 | an inline lightbox alternative with slideshow x Note: To see the full potential of CSS3 styling (shadows, gradients, rounded corners, alpha transparency), please view this page in a modern webkit or mozilla browser (Firefox 3.5+, Safari 4, Opera 10.50, Chrome 4). Other browsers will degrade gracefully. Except for IE6, though, which I didn't bother to include. Feel free to come up with your own solution ;-) Example 1 The first popeye-box uses the standard options: it floats to the left and opens to the right, its navigation and caption show on mouseover. By placing the navigation inside the stage area (where the image is displayed), we can get it to hover above the image. No need to read this, just dummy text ;-) Vivamus ut nisi id libero interdum pretium. View HTML code used in this example Example 2 The navigation stays fixed to the right of the image. There is no enlarge button, but a click on the image enlaregs and shrinks it nevertheless. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. View HTML code used in this example

Une introduction à la mobilité sur le Web - Blog - Veille - Clever Age Cet article constitue l’introduction d’une série de billets sur la mobilité, qui sera publiée dans les semaines à venir sur le blog de Clever Age. Pas facile de trouver un angle d’attaque, le sujet est large, il adresse de nombreuses problématiques fonctionnelles, marketing, technologiques.... Je pourrais classiquement commencer par rappeler les chiffres, mais je prends l’hypothèse que si vous lisez ce billet, vous êtes déjà convaincus de l’intérêt qu’il faut porter à la mobilité et à son potentiel, et surtout de la nécessité de l’inscrire dans la stratégie globale des SI de l’entreprise voire de l’entreprise elle-même. La sacro-saint Google l’annonce depuis un moment, son CEO l’a encore exprimé clairement lors de la keynote de Barcelone en février dernier : « Mobile is pretty much the answer to everything Anything that Google creates from here on out will be first on the mobile platform and then worked around for the desktop » twitté par @GoogleTravel le 19 octobre 2010 La technologie NFC

Geeks and Delegation: A Match Made in Hell Last week, I was invited to join 3,000 delegates to what turned out to be the largest entrepreneurship conference in the world. The Global Entrepreneurship Congress 2012 took place in Liverpool, UK (a few words about Liverpool in a moment) and its speakers and panels were selected in order to inspire us into entrepreneurial action. Upon arriving in Liverpool on the GEC Express Virgin train, chartered for the specific occasion (welcoming speech and random encounter with Sir Richard Branson), I didn’t know what to expect. One of the first things that I found out, to my surprise, was how geeky Liverpool is! It has more scientists than Cambridge and a booming game industry (it’s supposedly second in the UK). Sir Richard Branson was the main ”attraction” for the day and who could blame the the crowd? Q&A with Sir Richard Branson Delegation was the first skill I was forced to learn when I made the jump from a technical to a managerial position. Don’t drop the “ball”!
