What is Node.JS and Why Should I Care? [Web Development]

JavaScript is a just a client-side programming language that runs in the browser, right? Not any more. Node.js is a way of running JavaScript on the server; but it’s so much more as well. If you’re at all interested in web development, you really should find out a little about Node and why it’s making waves in the community. JavaScript is after all, just a language – there’s nothing that says it couldn’t be used on a server as well as in the user’s browser.

Facebook Ads vs Google Adwords: Which One Got Me The Most Clicks?

I honestly never thought that I’d be paying for any sort of advertising for my blog, at least not until it entered into the “big time”, with many hundreds of thousands of pageviews per day. I never really believed that the cost of advertising on a small scale could really be worth the results.

This is the question that I set out to answer at the beginning of this year

3 Desktop Color Picker Applications To Help You Pick The Perfect Shade

“Creative” is a word I’ll never use to describe myself! Not visually, at least. I’m proud of much of what I can do on the Internet, but when it comes to graphics and image editing, you won’t see me throwing out my two cents. However, I am very picky and a bit of a perfectionist. For years, I’ve been designing small websites and learning the basics of web design using CSS.

Figure Out Website Problems With Chrome Developer Tools Or Firebug

If you’ve been following my jQuery tutorials so far, you may have already run into some code problems and not known how to fix them.

So before continuing with some more complex jQuery code, I thought we’d examine the tools available in the world’s most popular browser – Chrome.

What Is a Website Wireframe & How Can It Help You Develop Your Website?

On a technical level, a modern website isn’t just one thing. It’s a complex soup of interacting technologies, such as HTML (the markup you see on the page), JavaScript (the language running in your browser, affecting interactions), CSS (the language for setting the page’s appearance), and more. But on a more basic level, a website is an idea. If it’s your website, you probably know what you want it to do, or what you want users to get out of it.
