How to setup a web development environment
Welcome to our first video tutorial. Where I’m going to show you in detail how to setup a local web development environment. This tutorial is for novices and beginner in web development. Most of us are using Windows systems, this is because I selected WAMP at the most appropriate tool for us. We will install WAMP at our computer, and I will show you how you can use your database (phpMyAdmin), and, as some extra – I will show you a process of making own php-based RSS feed (on PHP).
Vimeo API – OAuth and Upload Example
Today I would like to continue talking about video. Last time we talked about Youtube, but today I decided to select Vimeo. Maybe you are owner of your own video website, maybe you are thinking about it, but anyway I think that our information will be useful for you. As you know, video usually means that you need to have a lot of space at hard disk of your hosting account. And it is true in case if you store video files at your own server. But, you can avoid all these difficulties (video storing and conversion) – you can try to work with 3-rd party video hostings. Our second example – Vimeo. In our new tutorial I will tell you how you can create Vimeo cross-uploader for your website.
CSS3 Loading elements
In our new tutorial I will show you how to create pure CSS3 loading elements (without any images). I think that it can be interesting for you in order to decrease amount of extra images in your project. I prepared three different loading elements. Now, lets check how I made them.

Facebook like photo gallery with comments
Have you thought about own facebook-style photo gallry system with comments? I think – yes. Today I made up my mind to prepare it for you. Main idea – when we click at images – they popup (ajax) with bigger image at the left and comments section at the right. All images are in the database (mySQL). And, of course, we will use PHP to achieve our result. Also, our comment system will prevent accepting more than 1 comment per 10 mins (to avoid spam).
My portal – single page layout for your community.
Today I have prepared new great template for you. This is modern looking stylish layout in dark colors.

Sure that you will like it.

Have you ever thought about creating some interactive navigation menu in HTML5, directly at canvas element? Yes, this is strange idea, but it is quite possible that similar ideas are attended you. So, I made up my mind to prepare our first pure html5 canvas menu (basically – this is some set of buttons). We will create these buttons with a fire affect at the bottom. And you will be able to set custom click actions for menu elements.
