It may or may not be true that you can learn a programming language in 7 or 21 days, and it may or may not depend on what “learn to program” book you read. However, it does take a lot longer than that to gain experience in how to use a language most effectively. It is a cumulative process that builds up your skills day after day and year after year.
In this quick tip, I’ll show you how to use the new HTML5 date input, and then provide a fallback jQuery UI solution for the browsers which don’t yet support this new input type.
I’m pleased to present you with part one of a two part series on creating a photo site using PHP, jQuery, and AJAX. Originally, I intended to fit the entire tutorial into one screencast, but that quickly became a pipe dream as I realized that there was simply too much to cover. Nevertheless, even if you only watch this first video, you should learn a great deal.
We’ll be retrieving images from a database, creating a simple login form with authentication, and will then allow for our database to be asynchronously updated. Sounds good? If so, let’s get into it.
One struggle that still remains today in web design is displaying all of the redundant information on every page. For example, a login form. What if there was a way to easily make the content accessible on every page, but keep it hidden until needed? Well you can, by making a top panel that when clicked, will reveal its self and its content. But we need to make this look nice, so we’ll also animate it.
jQuery is awesome. I’ve been using it for about a year now and although I was impressed to begin with I’m liking it more and more the longer I use it and the more I find out about it’s inner workings. I’m no jQuery expert. I don’t claim to be, so if there are mistakes in this article then feel free to correct me or make suggestions for improvements.

The second method is to write our code in an external file. This benefit of this method is that we can run the same code on multiple pages if necessary. Thus saving ourselves from repetitive strain injury!
In today’s lesson we will be learning how to decrease loading time on web applications with a number of videos. Usually the way things work is that a page, along with its content loads at a given speed, but nothing on the page is usable until the application is fully loaded. What we are going to be doing is load the page without any videos, and then when a video is requested by the user to view, it will load on its own, separately from the page.
