Beginner’s Introduction to Java EE

Java is incredibly popular, and for good reason. The programming language is easy to learn and is often a university’s first choice for the code it teaches its students. On the other side of it, Java is supported by multiple tech enterprises, most notably by Oracle, Google, and IBM. As a result of these two pillars of support, Java is currently the number one most popular programming language, according to the Tiobe Index which analyzes a language’s popularity by number of online searches for it....

My favorite development tool set, keeping it simple

When I first started playing around with websites in the late nineties (wow, I feel old now) there wasn't much in the way of choice for development IDE's, there was really only Microsoft FrontPage and Macromedia (now Adobe) Dreamweaver. Being honest they weren't great, Dreamweaver's big claim to fame was that it generated cleaner html than FrontPage. Both where poor by today's standards, this was mainly because they where WYSIWYG editors, allowing even novices to create simple pages. When I went...

5 Differences Between C# and Java: Objects and Classes

One of the most important aspects of C-derived languages is object orientation. Objects and classes allow programs to specify methods and variables in one portion of code and use them again wherever necessary. While the basic structures of class construction remain consistent between C# and Java, some subtle differences my cause problems for developers unaccustomed to the idiosyncrasies between the two languages. #1: Instance-level inner classes ... C#: Work-around support Instance-level...

5 Differences Between C# and Java: Data Types

The line between desktop development and web-based applications has been all but obliterated in the last few years. With the advent of smartphones, especially Google’s Java-based Android operating system, developers are scrambling to jump onto the newest technology, while fearing that the skills they have cultivated over the years may become obsolete. Many former C++ and C# programmers are migrating their way to Java applications. While the languages are remarkably similar (as Java was built...

5 Differences Between C# and Java: Methods

One of the biggest difference between C# and Java is how they handle methods. In both languages, methods are the building blocks of functional code: they define the variables, specify the operations carried out on those variables, and can return values to be used in other methods. Although the creators of the Java language followed many of the concepts of C-based languages, their development of methods allowed for fewer restrictions and more flexibility. #1: Virtual Methods ... C#: Methods are non-virtual...

Developing a Responsive Website: Secondary Page Part 2

We’re going to wrap up our tutorial on how to develop a responsive website this week by making our secondary page, well, responsive. We created our large layout for the page in our last tutorial, but now we want to make it fluid so that it will display nicely across various platforms, ranging from tablets and mobile devices to PC’s.  Let’s take a quick peak at what we’re working towards. Notice how once we hit the skinnier, mobile version of the site we go to a more vertical layout.  This makes it...
