Marmalade is a cross-platform solution that allows us to write the source code for a video game once in C++ (a language that most video game developers will already be familiar with) and then deploy it to a number of different platforms, including iOS, Android, and BlackBerry PlayBook.
In this article by Sean Scaplehorn, author of Marmalade SDK Mobile Game Development Essentials, we will be learning how to get the Marmalade SDK set up for development. While Marmalade is available in both Windows and Mac versions, the Windows version is the most developed of the two.Read Getting Started with Marmalade in full
In this article by Ajit Kumar, author of Sencha MVC Architecture, we will take a step-by-step approach to create a functional application in ExtJS using the MVC architecture and the framework classes related to it. For the sake of completeness and illustration of the concepts, we will be taking up an application requirement and implementing it in ExtJS.
As a requirement, we will be creating an application, which would:
Show the list of departments and the users
Show the list of users for a selected department
Allow the user to edit user information
Refresh the users list to get all the users of all the departments
Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) is a programming language built into Microsoft Office applications. As you improve your skills in any application from the Office System, you will eventually realize that although Microsoft Office applications offer a large number of tools, they do not offer everything you need to perform your daily chores. Such chores may include creating a corporate custom-format, a custom function that calculates commission payments, and so on.
Thus, VBA works as a gap-filler; in other words, its main purpose is to ensure that you can do whatever you need to do in your job.
In this article by Robert Martin, author of Excel Programming with VBA Starter,you will get to know a bit about VBA, its basic features, what you can do with it, and how you can put it to work with a view to facilitating your daily work, by automating common tasks.Read Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) in full

Mobile games have been the recent craze and with so many ways to monetize the popularity of these games.ShiVa3D gives developers the power to quickly develop the game once, but deploy to almost every popular mobile platform, which enables them to have greater distribution and a greater opportunity to sell games.
This article by Wade Tracy, author of Learning ShiVa3D Game Development, This article shows you how to install the tools that you will need and get basic objects into the game. We'll also briefly touch on a few topics, such as input and lighting that will be covered later, so that we can get a very rudimentary game up and running in this article itself!Read Getting Started in full
In this article by Ivan Idris, the author of NumPy Cookbook, we will learn some of NumPy's more advanced and tricky indexing techniques. NumPy has very efficient arrays that are easy to use due to their powerful indexing mechanism. NumPy is famous for its efficient arrays. This fame is partly due to the ease of indexing. We will demonstrate advanced indexing tricks using images.
In this article, we will cover:
Comparing views and copies
Indexing with a list of locations
Indexing with booleans
Stride tricks for Sudoku
Before diving into indexing, we will install the necessary software — SciPy and PIL. Some of the examples in this article will involve manipulating images. In order to do that, we will require the Python Image Library (PIL); but don't worry, instructions and pointers to help you install PIL and other necessary Python software are given throughout the article, when necessary.Read Advanced Indexing and Array Concepts in full

Windows Azure Service Bus offers features that are not offered by any other cloud platform on the market. One important feature is the Service Bus that enables you to connect your on-premise services to Windows Azure services and beyond. The Access Control Service enables you to easily authenticate users without having to write complex authentication code ourselves. By using Windows Identity Framework (WIF) and supporting identity providers such as Live ID, Yahoo, and Facebook, it will be easy to use these identity providers as the main authentication mechanism in our own services.
In this article by Riccardo Becker, author of Windows Azure programming patterns for Start-ups, we will provide a systematic guide on how to integrate with Facebook. AppFabric also contains AppFabric applications, an easy way to develop and deploy composite applications. Another interesting feature is the caching feature that AppFabric offers.Read Windows Azure Service Bus: Key Features in full
