Web development News, Videos, Reviews and Gossip - Lifehacker I've used various versions of Windows for years, Linux in various flavours for another few years, and OS X for about 2-3 years total. I'm now a convert to OS X (though proudly not part of the cult of Mac — I enjoy the OS, I don't want Jobs' offspring) for general desktop use, switching to Windows for gaming. I find app quality is generally significantly higher on OS X than Windows (and certainly Linux). Do note the word "generally" — some of this stuff is cross-platform and in some cases Windows offers something better! Web design training: the top 20 online resources Web design can be daunting.

It Depends — A dependency management app How often have you had a software deploy that broke something else you didn’t know depended on the system being upgraded? Or took a server down that you didn’t realize another system was using? Or had a production issue and realized that literally the only person who knew anything about that system was out on vacation? Remembering dependency chains, especially if they are a few steps removed, is no easy task. We saw that as a problem worth solving, so we made It Depends, a dependency management app.

How to Get the Best Color Out of Your Photos @bigbill25: Yes I know, that ergs me as well, but the idea that those are "primary" colors seems to be embedded in a persons mind by those darn 3rd grade art teachers. I guess we will just have to accept the fact that the general populace is mis-informed. @bigbill25: Actually, thats not entirely true. It depends on what you use for material. In paint, the primary colors are Red, Yellow and Blue. When working with light, they are Red, Green and Blue.

HTML Introduction The HTML Introduction tutorial explains what HTML is and how to use it for web development. HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) is the foundation of a website. While you may see file extensions like php, cfm, asp, etc., these files will still contain HTML tags in order to display content. An HTML file is placed on a server and when requested by a user, it is read into the user's browser and displayed as a web page.

The study was carried out on thale cress or Arabadopsis thaliana as it’s known scientifically – that is closely related to broccoli, kale, mustard greens and other siblings of the brassica family and popular for science experiments.

Python Functions The Python Functions tutorial explains how to use functions in Python and discussing the scope of functions. Functions in Python are super useful in separating your code, but they don't stop there. Any code that you think you will ever use anywhere else, you should probably put in a function. You can also add arguments to your functions to have more flexible functions, but we will get to that in a little bit. You can define a function by using the keyword def before your function name.

Full Stop — Web design from Pittsburgh, PA For the TL;DR crew, here’s the deal: as of today, November 8th, 2013, Full Stop is no longer accepting new projects. We’re leaving the world of client services, and from this point forward, focusing our attention on Cotton Bureau and United Pixelworkers full-time. Wanna read a little more? Good, because we wrote another thousand words. Since the beginning, our web design business at Full Stop has been forced to compete with our internal projects (namely, United Pixelworkers and now, Cotton Bureau). When we walked away from our previous jobs, we wanted to start a company that did things the right way, and by things we meant everything from code to design to the client relationship to a well-structured business in a great office.
