It's a mobile world, and the same is expected of developers. You cannot always be next to a computer, but you can take steps to help solve a crisis without ruining your day.image

Optimize your website

Published on Friday 23, November 2012
Watching file sizes and following coding standards are only one simple way to optimize your website. Proper HTML will ensure you page is processed as smoothly as possible, but does not mean a major speed boost. When the dust settles from developing a new website, I turn to Google's PageSpeed for the round up of last minute tweaks.

Bootstrap from Twitter

Published on Sunday 11, December 2011
Need to do a quick web site but strapped for time? Twitter has a whole bunch of open source projects they have released, and one of them is called Bootstrap. It comes preloaded with CSS styles and simple JavaScript plugins. I'd have to say the best part about it is the predefined layouts, or the ability to make them even faster.

Achievements - Winning the Internet

Published on Sunday 4, December 2011
Achievements seem to be popping up in every new web service. Why? Because achievements make you win the Internet. Okay, not really, but it does make your user feel more engaged into your web site. It gives the user a reason to use your site and do more things on your site. The best part is the achievements do not even need to be all that difficult.

PHP Server Variables

Published on Thursday 24, November 2011
I know when I first started out learning PHP it was difficult finding good examples or live demos of simple PHP in use. Often I'd have a large number of files used to demonstrate built in PHP functions. So, to help any budding PHP developers out there I compiled a list of the PHP Server variables along with what data they provide.  $_SERVER variables can be used in multiple ways from getting information about your visitors to script security.

SR Photography offered a nice gesture, if I created a PHP back-end contact form they would take infant pictures of our new born son.  Created a short and simple PHP script with field validation (NOTE: Did not design site or form, just the back-end functionality of the form).

Game Ladder Script

Published on Saturday 14, May 2011
Two years ago I decided to check out an old gaming group that I used to play with years before that. I created a plugin to seamlessly add a ladder system into their web site.  A ladder system is typically used to match one-on-one matches. This allowed the group to add friendly competition without major overhaul of their web site.  I only made one version, but I plan on developing it a little bit further. The script allows for multiple games,which are dynamically set, and requires only one additional SQL table.
