Web Languages and Standards





Web development can range from developing the simplest static single page of plain text to the most complex web-based internet applications, electronic businesses, and social network services using a wide variety of languages and standards, including the familiar HTML, JavaScript and jQuery, ASP and ASP.NET, PHP, ColdFusion, CSS, PHP, Flex and Flash, but also the implementation of a broad list of standards including XML, WSDL, SSDL, VoiceXML and many more.

When I have the Angular server running, but I'd like to terminate it, must I select Ctr+X?

ng serve
Is this the right way to shut it down? I do not have a command prompt when using PowerShel on Windows

Beginners pick a language because they think they will make money using language.

But does a student need to start on computer science learning 0's & 1's, trees, lists, stacks, heaps.

Are there some students that are so gifted they can skip to coding the language?

Maybe kids who have used ipads their whole lives can start coding ios without learning about adding machines from the past.

Are there any naturally talented students that dont need to learn computer science theory?
I see Typescript can define statically types variable with the word "let"

how do these two lines differ?

let name: string = 'Bob';

name: string = 'Bob';
what is the deference between reciprocal link and regular link ?
This is my hello.js file:

I received the following email today regarding one of my registered websites:

As part of the rules of domain ownership, ICANN (the international governing organization of domain domains) requires that your contact information be publicly accessible. Therefore, your name, address, email address and phone number are made available to anyone who performs a whois search for the domain name.

We understand that making this information publicly available is not the best solution for many customers, but it is a requirement for domain ownership. In addition, using false contact information violates domain registration agreements and could lead to loss of domain ownership.  But there is now an alternative:

Private Whois Service is now available to protect your privacy!

In order to help protect our customer's privacy we offer a Private Whois service which will remove your private information from the whois database. This service will display proxy information for the name, address, phone number and use an alias email address. Any emails sent to the proxy email will be forwarded to your actual domain contact email address.

The Private Whois service is $5 per year and can be activated by visiting your Control Panel Domain manager at:

I'm a bit confused on how they, or anyone else for that matter, can offer this service, as I …
Let me first say this is high level and I may be missing certain information.

Working a back end system that will contain REST Services that will be used to create requests and retrieve list information. The data being passed back and forth will be JSON.

The web application I want to build should be a single page application. Some of the key features needed:
1. Single Page Application - Store user data (Preferences)
2. Single site should work with Browser and Mobile Devices (Mobile Web App)
3. Everything one click away (AS much as possible)
4. List Display (Datagrid)
5. Request forms via Modal Window

At a high level what language(s) would you use to accomplish this?

Thank you in advance.
How do you go about making design decisions and deciding what browsers to support?
When making a mainstream smart phone application today, that is NOT a Mobile App (responsive website), what platforms are there besides iPhone and Android?

I guess I mean "relevant platforms."

Is Blackberry still used by lots of users? And what other ones should I consider?

What development tools exist for these smaller platforms. But I can not use a Javascript framework, since this can not be responsive.
I assume when you have an app that is going to involve money, I automatically presume the iPhone and Android apps need to be Native. True?

I also expect to need to interact securely with hardware elements on the phone, both iPhone and Android. How well do Mobile apps do this?

And what is Semantic Versioning?


I don't know javascript: what's the codes below doing
& any harm (in terms of data leaks/loss & IT Security)
that it will pose if tagged onto a web page?

I have been tasked with developing a plan to get out developers from testing and developing on our procuction boxes and testing/developing on our Test/Dev boxes.

My experience is only with small shops with 1 (myself) or 2 programmers, and we never needed a process to develope on Dev servers and promote to proction servers complete with gatekeepers.

Can anyone suggest some articles or provide some info on the subject that are better than just web-search ?

Thank You.
On our SharePoint, I need to embed a link that will open an external webpage using a specific browser, please advise.

I have a friend who is asking for a client :) about their Magento site.  They currently are using Magento  Enterprise.

They have a few questions.

1)  Is the most current version of Magento Enterprise?
2)  When is the "end of life"for this version of Magento Enterprise.
3)  Is Magento 2 what they will need to upgrade to?   Or are there other Magento Enterprise options?


Hi, I hope I can explain this well enough.

My folder structure looks like the attached. In each folder, I have src/pages, results, dev/gulp.

pages contains the nunjucks files, results are the resulting html files from running gulp nunjucks, and dev/gulp is where the gulpfile.js is.

When I want to make a change across the board, say to the navigation, I have to use the command line to go into each folder, gulp nunjucks, upload, then back out by changing directories, navigate to the next one, gulp nunjucks, and on through all 13. So my command line looks like the attached.

Can you help me find a way to speed that up?
Does inc.com have an RSS feed?  Google searches are not yielding me any results on if they do or not.  I assume that's because they do not, but is there something hidden I'm missing?

I have been looking hi and low to auto populate user name and department in InfoPath browser form from several sources available
I tried User Profile Service but since Microsoft made it difficult in 2013 version and I am not an admin on the host I can't use this.
 I also tried User Information list. It worked perfectly in InfoPath preview but came up empty when I published the form.

So I tried to use JQuery and SP services. I captured all info in alarms correctly but cant figure out how actually place it in form controls. I use text boxes for all.
<script src="/sites/MySite/SiteCollectionDocuments/jQuery/jquery-1.8.2.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script><script src="/sites/MySite/SiteCollectionDocuments/jQuery/jquery.SPServices-2014.01.min.js" type="text/javascript">
</script><script type="text/javascript">

$(function() {        
     var thisUsersValues = $().SPServices.SPGetCurrentUser({
      fieldNames: ["Title", "EMail", "Office", "WorkPhone"],
      debug: false



Can someone explain this code to me?

/*CALL Controllers CLASS IF EXIST*/


				$this->load->ClassValidation = false;

				$this->className = str_replace("-",'_',$row->slug);

				$this->load->controller( $this->className );

				if(method_exists( $this->load->{$this->className}, index ))



					$this->load->view( $row->folder.'/'.$row->goto, $data ); //default



				$this->load->view( $row->goto ); //!$row- page not found
