The goal of this article is to provide a simple overview of the
features of XML.
If you aren't already familiar with HTML,
be sure to read that overview first.
XML has similar "tag" syntax like HTML, though it allows users
to create their own tags. It does not replace HTML however.
XML has the sole purpose of structuring and allowing
data to be delivered on many different systems by many various applications.
That's it. By itself, it is

This intent of this article is to provide an overview of the power and
importance of Object-Oriented Programming.
A Brief Programming History Lesson
Don't worry, I'm not going all the way back to the punch card days.
Before OOP, if writing programs was a bit of a nightmare,
updating them was a full on night terror.
Most early programming types are linear. The control flow of the
program is easy to trace. The problem is that all of the
data was stored in the same place. Thi ... read more

Web, Native, or Hybrid?
Interested in have a mobile application developed for your company or website?
Your first step should be to decide which of these basic types to choose.
The reason for this is simple: time and cost.
If your company has an unlimited budget, I'd recommend developing a
native mobile application for each mobile device OS

For the rest of us, both time and cost are huge determ ... read more

Imagine your application running perfectly, through every stage of development.
You confidently deliver it to the client, then get aconfusing response. The client calls
stating that the application isn't running properly? What?!?!?
This happens more than one would think. Many are already aware of certain different browser
specifics even, and STILL find out that that one or more HTML tags or CSS properties aren't

IDEs (Integrated Development Environments) & software tools/utilities in general can either greatly enhance
the efficiency of development (as intended) or create a potentially unnecessary new learning curve for an established
programmer who may already have intimate knowledge with other comparible or perhaps even better IDEs, software and methods.
If this is the case, more than likely, said developer should be able to pick up the software relatively quickly
given that he or she is p ... read more

referring to web programming languages. What most of them probably won't know however (depending on your field of
course) is the history and evolution of these three languages.
I can remember when using nested HTML tables for layout was commonplace, though resolution, browsers, systems
were a problem, often rendering code differently. I remember using tags that are now long ... read more

If you are new to web programming, this is a great first step! Though get ready to tackle MANY more advanced languages in order to accomplish all that you desire on the web...

* Note: Although HTML and CSS are often learned at the same time, it may still be best to first
read the overview of HTML, then come back to this overview.
HTML defines the general content of a web page. CSS, as its name implies,
defines the style and formatting of that content. Also as the name implies,
the styles cascade, are inherited; and their different sources have a particular
priority to which they are applied.
All browsers support CSS. It is a sta ... read more
