In this two-part article series by Keith Pope, we will learn about:
- Creating Models that do not use a database as a data source
- Using Zend_Session_Namespace
- Implementing the Cart Views and Controllers
- More Forms, View Helpers, and so on
The main focus of this two-part article by Jeff Winder & Paul Tondeur will be on how to get models from the programs like Autodesk 3ds Max, Sketchup and Blender into Papervision3D. The process of creating models in general is too program-specific and out-of-scope for this article. Therefore, only the creation of a simple 3D object per program will be discussed. However, some more complex preconfigured models are also provided.Read Papervision3D External Models: Part 1 in full

At the start of a new academic year, it’s helpful to do some Moodle housework before our students enter our course. Your Moodle admin should be able to add your classes and set up marking grades for you, but if you’re keen to get started, this article by Mary Cooch will show you how a regular teacher can:
- get their classes set up as groups on a Moodle course page
- add their own customized marking scales
In the article Continuum: Ensuring the Health of your Source Code by Maria Odea Ching and Brett Porter, we will learn about the importance of a continuous integration, or CI, server in a project (especially gigantic ones!).
We will be using Continuum to show you first-hand the formidable role of a CI server in the development life cycle. We will learn the essentials of how to set up Continuum, plus the basics of how to configure it so you will know when your project's build breaks.
The first part of the article deals with setting up a source repository, installing any required applications or tools, and setting up Continuum. The remaining sections cover the systematic process of adding and building projects in Continuum.Read Apache Continuum: Ensuring the Health of your Source Code (Part 1) in full
