In this article by David Karlins, author of Dreamweaver CS5.5 Mobile and Web Development with HTML5, CSS3, and jQuery, we will learn to build web pages in Dreamweaver relying entirely on HTML5 layout tags. There are four things we will accomplish by learning to do that:
- Building page layouts relying exclusively on HTML5 layouts will hone our skills at using these new tools for page design, and introduce HTML5 Code Hints in Dreamweaver
- Relying on standardized, defined HTML5 layout elements (as opposed to custom-defined, irregularly implemented Div tags) streamlines page design
- There are actual, significant real-world scenarios where building pages relying exclusively on HTML5 layout elements is the best way to design them (for example, when designing pages for iPhones or iPads)
- There are functional advantages beyond design considerations for organizing page content in HTML5 layout elements. We will examine those advantages as we build HTML5 pages
Designing an application is much more than selecting user interface components and choosing color schemes. Although these decisions may be rather important for the overall success of an application, we will be specifically focusing on the performance aspect of design and how the creation of a stable foundation and making solid decisions early, will pay off in the end.
With performance in mind, this article by Loyal Moses, author of iPhone Applications Tune-Up, will focus on the primitive concepts of designing your project from the ground up for maximum performance. Specific areas in which our concepts will focus are as follows:
- Preparing the project
- Project organization
- Project structure
- Groups and files
- Groups and files

Moodle is a free learning management system that allows you to create powerful, flexible, and engaging online learning experiences. We use the phrase "online learning experiences" instead of "online courses" deliberately. The phrase "online course" often connotes a sequential series of web pages, some images, maybe a few animations, and a quiz, provided online. There might also be some email or bulletin board communication among the teacher and students. However, online learning can be much more engaging than that.
In this article by William Rice, author of Moodle 2.0 E-Learning Course Development, we will give you an introduction to Moodle.Read Introduction to Moodle in full
In this article by Vivek Ramachandran, author of BackTrack 5 Wireless Penetration Testing Beginner’s Guide, we will focus on attacking the client. Most people exclude the client from their list when they think about WLAN security. This article will prove beyond doubt why the client is just as important as the access point when penetrating testing a WLAN network. The client can be either a connected or isolated un-associated client. We will look at various attacks, which can be used to target the client.
We will cover the following:
- Honeypot and Mis-Association attacks
- Caffe Latte attack
- De-Authenticaton and Dis-Association attacks
- Hirte attack
- AP-less WPA-Personal cracking

WebSphere Application Server, often referred to simply as WAS, is a JEE-compliant application server platform. JEE stands for Java Enterprise Edition and was previously referred to as J2EE. JEE application servers provide functionality to deploy fault-tolerant, distributed, and multi-tier Java software.
In this article by Steve Robinson, author of IBM WebSphere Application Server 8.0 Administration Guide, we will be covering a few of the command-line tools shipped with WAS to help you with problem diagnosis when WebSphere or applications are not running as they should. We will also introduce the IBM Support Assistant, a very powerful WebSphere Application Server (WAS) support tool, and walk through how to analyze a WAS log file using one of the many ISA add-ons.
Specifically we will cover the following topics:

The logic tier of LightSwitch basically starts with a data service that encapsulates all the access to the data source. This tier can host any number of data services exposed as endpoints at the service boundary. Each data service exposes a number of queryable entity sets with operations for querying entities and an operation for submitting changes; add, update, and delete. An entity set contains entities of the same entity type. All operations take place with entity sets whether they are intended for fetching or for making changes to them. If you think of an entity set as an analogue of SQL table you will not be wrong. Just like you take information out of the table, make changes to it and return it to the table, you do likewise with entity sets.
In this article by Jayaram Krishnaswamy, author of Microsoft Visual Studio LightSwitch Business Application Development, we will take a look at querying a single entity.Read Microsoft LightSwitch: Querying and Filtering Data in full
