DomReady

May 31st, 2008

DomReady has been starting to become all the craze lately with the language Javascript to use for HTML pages. But what is it? DomReady allows you manipulate with all the elements on the HTML page before the entire page loads. What use can this be if you can just use window.onload instead? Well, imagine a large site like MySpace.com, or IGN.com, which have a lot of flashy banner ads and images to load. My guess for the entire page to load can take ~10 seconds, assuming we are on a fast connection speed to the Internet, respectively. That isn’t bad, most of us can wait 10 seconds for a page to load if it’s our favorite site to visit. But for some users who don’t have a high speed Internet, they will have to wait a lot longer for the page to load, and therefore the Javascript window.onload function won’t be executed until it takes it sweet time to load.

Starting a new

May 29th, 2008

This site originally started out as a portfolio to help me get started in the web development career, which has helped me get to where I am now, I want it to make a site to help novice programmers get started and motivated writing websites using PHP and games with Flash (my personal 2 favorite languages). I am by no means an expert with programming, I don’t know all the technical terms to programming or all the functions and classes available for the languages I know. But I am very experienced with programming websites (both small and large scale), thinking of work-around ideas, problem shooting, and developing small Flash games that are more addicting than they appear (when I make Flash games, I focus on the game play and functionality – I don’t focus on graphics – that takes too much time).

With that said, I hope you find something useful for your projects, little or big. I am sure I will provide several programming ideas, or an interesting way of doing so, or an intriguing work-around, that could help you, but I can not guarantee it. Every programmer writes code completely different from one another even if taught or trained by an expert. And every programmer learns at a different pace even if the code is a couple of lines or hundreds of lines.
