In this article by Allan Brito, we will see how to use some special effects to put our spacecraft in outer space and even make both weapons shoot! All these effects are created with a mix of particles and composition nodes that generate the effects in a very short time. Both techniques and tools help a lot in this project, and can be used in other 3D modeling and rendering projects as well. It adds even more elements and visual aids to our project in order to bring more realism to the scene.Read Make Spacecraft Fly and Shoot with Special Effects using Blender 3D 2.49 in full

In this article series by Jose Argudo Blanco and David Upton, we will cover some important topics, such as the MVC pattern and how CI handles this pattern, and also, we will make an example controller just to see how all this works.
We will briefly look at the theory behind MVC, and then at the way CI organizes itself internally. In particular, what goes in those different folders and how do they communicate?
In this article, we will cover the following:
- How MVC helps to organize a dynamic website
- The process by which CI analyzes an incoming Internet request and decides which part of your code will handle it
- What the code does
- CI syntax rules
- The different type of files or classes you can find—or write for yourself—on a CodeIgniter site
