WordPress vs Joomla : Which CMS Should You Choose?

3.5

index   While there is a large number of Content Management Systems (CMS) to choose from, few CMS platforms are more popular and more widely used than WordPress and Joomla. Some wrongly believe that Joomla and WordPress are popular simply because they are the oldest. In reality they are neither the oldest nor the pioneers of the CMS space. In fact, there are plenty of CMS platforms that existed before the turn of the millennium. WordPress didn’t rear its head until 2003, and Joomla didn’t show up until around 2005.

The popularity of either platform is largely due to its ease of use. The birth of the widely accepted open source CMS has given millions of users all around the power to create their own dynamic websites. Even some giant brands have turned to open source content management to streamline the web content management process.

In this post, we aim to give you the information you need to make the decision between the Joomla or WordPress CMS.

What is Ecommerce?

3.5

 

Electronic commerce or ecommerce is a term for any type of business, or commercial transaction, that involves the transfer of information across the Internet. It covers a range of different types of businesses, from consumer based retail sites, through auction or music sites, to business exchanges trading goods and services between corporations. It is currently one of the most important aspects of the Internet to emerge.

Ecommerce allows consumers to electronically exchange goods and services with no barriers of time or distance. Electronic commerce has expanded rapidly over the past five years and is predicted to continue at this rate, or even accelerate. In the near future the boundaries between “conventional” and “electronic” commerce will become increasingly blurred as more and more businesses move sections of their operations onto the Internet.

Business to Business or B2B refers to electronic commerce between businesses rather than between a business and a consumer. B2B businesses often deal with hundreds or even thousands of other businesses, either as customers or suppliers. Carrying out these transactions electronically provides vast competitive advantages over traditional methods. When implemented properly, ecommerce is often faster, cheaper and more convenient than the traditional methods of bartering goods and services.

Comments Off on The MVC Pattern and PHP

The MVC Pattern and PHP

4.3

The Model-View-Control (MVC) pattern, originally formulated in the late 1970s, is a software architecture pattern built on the basis of keeping the presentation of data separate from the methods that interact with the data. In theory, a well-developed MVC system should allow a front-end developer and a back-end developer to work on the same system without interfering, sharing, or editing files either party is working on.

Even though MVC was originally designed for personal computing, it has been adapted and is widely used by web developers due to its emphasis on separation of concerns, and reusable code. The pattern encourages the development of modular systems, allowing developers to quickly update, add, or even remove functionality.

Understanding MVC

The pattern’s title is a collation of its three core parts: Model, View, and Controller. A visual representation of a complete and correct MVC pattern looks like the following diagram:

10 Best Google Fonts for website

Ten Best Google Fonts for Designers

I’m a big Typekit fan – they have high quality foundry fonts that can elevate a design from good to amazing. However, while I prefer Typekit fonts to Google Fonts for their quality, I am learning that there are some drawbacks of using Typekit.

First, Typekit requires a subscription that is quite reasonably priced, but a pain for clients to have to purchase and renew. While the cost and extra effort of maintaining a subscription may be worth it in some instances, many times Google Fonts can get the job done for free. Also, Typekit doesn’t allow users to download fonts for mocking up designs. This makes it difficult to envision exactly what the final design will look like. Finally, Typekit fonts load slightly slower than Google Fonts. The difference in loading time seems so minimal to me that I wouldn’t shy aware from using Typekit based on that reason alone, but some of my developer colleagues would disagree.
