One of my latest purchases was an Android Samsung Galaxy Tablet 10.1. Unfortunately I have to get a replacement but it happens. So getting back on track I am new to an Android device. I found a great app on the Google Play Store, called Terminal IDE . This app brings you access to the terminal and you have some nice commands to work with. A few to name is, Git, VIM, find, etc… Once I get my tablet back I will do a video demo to show it off.
As a web developer I find that I write some code that I reuse and or have to write and copy and paste a few times. Well with this addon I use with TextMate called Zen Coding , I can save time. Take a look at their site for some good information.
jQuery is an upcoming/hot thing right now when it comes to web development. To me jQuery is slowly taking over flash. There are lots of things I can do in jQuery that I would have programmed in flash for. Before you kill the messenger there are things out there that flash can do that jQuery can’t. So let me post the source code for the tutorial and below that you can watch in video as I explain.

One of the things I have never been strong in is layout design. If you look at most of the sites I have done, there blah. Colors are limited and there is just no iCandy to the site. So my question is, is this fixable? Is there something out there that I can learn to help me develop more iCandy websites? If so could you please share?
I thought I would give an update on what is going on with me learning how to code. My resume has been getting beefed up. So now what I comfortably know how to program in is the following:
Basically if you are a type that hits many programming languages this app is for you. If you have multiple websites that you manage then this app would be for you. They make many plugins for this suite that it is well worth it. Now before I started to use this I was a hugh fan of Adobe Dreamweaver . If anyone would try to tell me different I would tell them that they are nuts.
Now an app like Dreamweaver costs around $350.00 USD. Aptana is free but you can buy the professional version which gives you some more advance features. That would cost you $99.99 USD. I will give Aptana credit cause they do not cripple the free version like some others do. This app will run in Mac, Linux, and Windows. In the next day or two I am planning on making a tutorial on this app to give you a tour of it.
Well I made a tutorial showing you how you can use PHP include statement to help your webpages. So you are saying how can this be? It helps with bigger webpages that need a change to be made to a menu or header. There are other things you can do this with. So watch the video to see what I am doing.
