Site updates and css hacks

Posted by aeron on Aug. 13, 2011, 1:14 a.m.

In my last blog I promised some articles on web development. I was planning on putting them up on my site at some point, so naturally instead of working on the articles themselves I rewrote my entire site to accommodate the new content.

I actually started a couple articles already, but they aren't finished.

To give you an idea what it's like, check out this unfinished introduction on MySQL. You can also get an idea of what topics I'll cover by checking this page.

As you can see some of the articles will get more complex. I'm still debating whether or not I should even bother with the introductory section. I feel like there are already a number of good tutorials to teach you that stuff, and probably better than I can. I guess it depends on how much interest there is. What do you guys think?

Speaking of web stuff, I just found this link that some of you might appreciate. It's just some cool shapes you can make with just CSS:

Anyway, that is all. Stay classy my friends.

Nice MySQL introduction so far; you need to cover cross-referencing, primary keys, etc, though I don't need to tell you that.

Also, didn't know you could do that with CSS. :O

AAAAHH GET IT AWAY FROM ME *DIES*

Anyhow, I'm looking forward to read about OO web development in PHP.

Did you try to actually delete that comment after I edited mine or did you just make it empty?

'fraid of the awesomeness of CSS, sir Xemic?

I'm actually pretty impressed by that.

Indeed, I'm planning an article dedicated to table design / database normalization

Glad you guys like it so far, I'll post again when more articles are completed :)

I like your page. And the css thing is interesting, but besides the obvious i think the only useful thing is the speech bubble idea. in my opinion.

ill get around to webdesigning eventually…
