Getting Started with WordPress

Git Teaching WordPress to Absolute Beginners Part 1: The Build One of the things that I love to do most with WordPress is to show absolute beginners how to use it . Recently I taught a group of writers how to get to grips with it. The aim was for them all to produce their own author’s portfolios. They ranged in age from around 25 – 60 so it was a pretty diverse group. Their technical ability ranged from someone who had been blogging for years to people who were horrified by the idea of having a blog. During a discussion of Twitter it was mentioned by a few that Twitter is only used by people who wanted to talk about what they had for breakfast. The fact is that there are many people who are put off from using blogs and internet tools more generally for a number of reasons: They don’t understand it They think there’s no future in it (my brother-in-law still thinks that everyone’s going to go back to playing with cup-and-ball instead of X-Boxes!) The great thing about WordPress is that it is easy enough for anyone to use, regardless of skill level.

Getting Started with Java IDL Java™ IDL is a technology for distributed objects – that is, objects interacting on different platforms across a network. Java IDL enables objects to interact regardless of whether they're written in the Java programming language or another language such as C, C++, COBOL, or others. This is possible because Java IDL is based on the Common Object Request Brokerage Architecture (CORBA), an industry-standard distributed object model. A key feature of CORBA is IDL, a language-neutral Interface Definition Language. Each language that supports CORBA has its own IDL mapping--and as its name implies, Java IDL supports the mapping for Java. To learn more about the IDL-to-Java language mapping, see IDL-to-Java Language Mapping. To support interaction between objects in separate programs, Java IDL provides an Object Request Broker, or ORB. This tutorial teaches the basic tasks needed to build a CORBA distributed application using Java IDL. For More Information

An Introduction to Programming with JacORB Gerald Brose Institut für Informatik Freie Universität Berlin, Germany This document gives an introduction to programming distributed applications with JacORB, a free Java object request broker. It is structured as follows. First, we briefly describe how to obtain and install JacORB. Section 2 gives a few examples on how to use JacORB to write distributed Java programs while section 3 contains a description of the utilities that come with JacORB. JacORB can be obtained as a gzipped tar-archive from the JacORB home page at You need to have a Java JDK (version 1.0 or above) and the CUP parser generator package installed properly on your system. To install JacORB, just gunzip and untar the archive in a directory, say JacORB. JacORB documentation consists of an overview paper, this document and a set of html-Files produced by javadoc which describe the Java API of the JacORB class library. 1.1 Contents of the Package Generator -i

Eclipse CORBA Plugin IDL Tutorial This HTML document was generated using the MS-Word 97 HTML converter and may contain strange text alignment and other problems. The Word version of this document is better for printing. The purpose of this tutorial is to introduce you to the IDL programming language, and to present you with sufficient tools to complete your first homework assignment. This is not intended to present a complete explanation of IDL. If there are topics not covered in this tutorial which you find interesting or necessary, use the IDL help or consult with Dr. To begin, click on the 'start' button at the lower left of the screen. Detailed explanations of these items can be accessed by selecting the Help option from the Menu Bar and selecting the following items in order: Help -> Contents -> UsingIDL -> IDL for Windows -> The Main IDL Window We are now prepared to experiment with IDLDE and eventually begin programming. From the Input Line, type: print, 3*5And you will see the number 15 displayed in the Output Log.

Qt Project Solarized - Ethan Schoonover Precision colors for machines and people Solarized is a sixteen color palette (eight monotones, eight accent colors) designed for use with terminal and gui applications. It has several unique properties. I designed this colorscheme with both precise CIELAB lightness relationships and a refined set of hues based on fixed color wheel relationships. It has been tested extensively in real world use on color calibrated displays (as well as uncalibrated/intentionally miscalibrated displays) and in a variety of lighting conditions. See the changelog for what’s new in the most recent release. Currently available in formats for (cf screenshots below): Editors & IDEs Vim by me.
