Westville, Nova Scotia Web Design & Development Articles
Latest articles from around the web
When working in a team, we focus so much on the work, that we often forget that we all have something in common. Something that is so obvious that we underestimate it: we all are human beings. And well, if we want to grow as a team and get better at what we do, we should embrace this fact more. In fact, I just came back from a week-long team retreat where we had team activities, team games, and sessions and discussions about how we can achieve just that. We figured out how much we value diversity, we realized how different the English language and its words are perceived by people from different countries, and we've seen short talks on various topics like work-life-balance but also on technical stuff like Docker or intercepting any computer's traffic with a Raspberry Zero. So if you have the chance to work in a team, use the opportunity and exchange views and share information with your co-workers. Work is part of your life, so why not make it a lovely part?The post Web Development Reading List #167: On Team Retreats, Immutable Cache, And Eliminating Clearfix Hacks appeared first on Smashing Magazine.
Have you already published that blog post and just noticed that you forgot some important aspects? We all make mistakes when writing our articles. It happens a lot that you forget something and get angry at yourself for clicking “Publish” too early. Highly successful bloggers always use a checklist that contains the most important aspects for that exact reason. You can then simply go through the list, and will never forget anything again. Today, we will show you how you can easily create a checklist like this. Why You Need a Checklist for Your Blog Posts As a blogger, you have developed a particular process that you go through when constructing and publishing your articles. When you work in a team, like I do here at Noupe, you are lucky, as there is a chief editor that will look over your articles before they see the light of day. However, when you are working on your own, mistakes are made much more quickly. For example, articles without a featured or any post image at all go live, or you forget to check the spelling to prevent at least the most obvious mistakes. Another very popular mistake is publishing an article […]* You might also be interested in the following articlesWeb Developer Checklist and Userium: 2 Useful Helpers for Oblivious…New and Unspent: 10 Fresh Free WordPress Plugins (Edition: March 2015)Boon or Bane?

On the TutsPlus.com site they've posted a new tutorial for those needing to manipulate images in their PHP applications. In this new tutorial they walk you through the basics of using the GD image processing functionality that's included in every PHP release. The internet would be pretty dull without images. However, maintaining and manipulating hundreds or thousands of images for your web site can be a headache. As your site design changes, you might need to modify all your images--for example, you might need to convert all your images to grayscale or resize them to 50% of their original size. You might also want to compress or crop different images. Doing this manually is time-consuming and error-prone, but with a little programming knowledge it can be automated. In this tutorial, you will learn about the GD (Graphic Draw) library in PHP. You'll see how this library can be used to manipulate images by resizing, cropping, rotating or filtering them. The post starts with a bit of background on GD and how to set it up on Windows versus Unix-based environments. They then get into some of the functionality that comes with GD including: getting data about the image flipping and rotating applying filters (ex: brightness, contrast) The post also includes two "real world" examples of GD in use: resizing an entire directory of images and applying grayscale/contrast filters to images.
