Interview With Bruce Lawson of Opera | Nettuts+

There’s a perception that being in developer relations for a browser maker is all glamor and glitz involving lots of jet setting and rockstar-like experiences. So far I haven’t personally found that to be the case but in looking at the life of Opera evangelist Bruce Lawson, I think he may be fitting that description.

Helping fight the good fight for standards, Bruce is constantly on the move either updating his awesome book Introducing HTML5 (which is regarded as one of the best HTML5 books out) or attending developer conferences to read the pulse of the community.

With Opera’s recent shift to the Blink rendering engine, I managed to snag some of Bruce’s time to ask him how the shift will change the Opera browser.

Working With IndexedDB – Part 2 | Nettuts+

Welcome to the second part of my IndexedDB article. I strongly recommend reading the first article in this series, as I’ll be assuming you are familiar with all the concepts covered so far. In this article, we’re going to wrap up the CRUD aspects we didn’t finish before (specifically updating and deleting content), and then demonstrate a real world application that we will use to demonstrate other concepts in the final article.

Dates and Time – The OOP Way | Nettuts+

The Date/Time PHP extension is a set of classes that allow you to work with almost all of the date and time related tasks. It’s been available since the release of PHP 5.2 and the extension introduced several new classes, all of which are mapped to real life scenarios:

Deeper In the Brackets Editor | Nettuts+

Nearly one year ago, Jeffrey Way reviewed the open source Brackets project. In the time since that review Brackets has come quite far, recently celebrating it’s 33rd Sprint release. In this article I’ll talk about many of the updates as well as demonstrate why Brackets is my favorite editor.

Authentication With Laravel 4 | Nettuts+

Authentication is required for virtually any type of web application. In this tutorial, I’d like to show you how you can go about creating a small authentication application using Laravel 4. We’ll start from the very beginning by creating our Laravel app using composer, creating the database, loading in the Twitter Bootstrap, creating a main layout, registering users, logging in and out, and protecting routes using filters. We’ve got a lot of code to cover, so let’s get started!

Intro to the React Framework | Nettuts+

In today’s world of Javascript Application frameworks, design philosophy is the key differentiating factor. If you compare the popular JS frameworks, such as EmberJS, AngularJS, Backbone, Knockout, etc. you are sure to find differences in their abstractions, thinking models, and of course the terminology. This is a direct consequence of the underlying design philosophy. But, in principle, they all do one thing, which is to abstract out the DOM in such a way that you don’t deal directly with HTML Elements.

Client-Side Security Best Practices | Nettuts+

Thanks to HTML5, more and more of an applications’ logic is transferred from server-side to client-side. This requires front-end developers to focus more on security. In this article I will show you how to make your apps more secure. I will focus on techniques that you may not have heard about, instead of just telling you that you have to escape HTML data entered in by users.

Of course I don’t want you to serve your content with FTP or plain TCP. What I mean is that if you want your users to be safe when using your website, you need to use SSL (HTTPS). And not only for login sites, or valuable information. For all of your content. Otherwise, when someone is accessing your app from a public network, what they see may be malformed by some hacker inside this network. This is called a main-in-the-middle attack:

WebGL With Three.js: Basics | Nettuts+

3D graphics in the browser have been a hot topic ever since it was first introduced. But if you were to create your apps using plain WebGL, it would take ages. This is exactly why some really useful libraries have recently came about. Three.js is one of the most popular, and in this series I will show you how best to use it in order to create stunning 3D experiences for your users.

Before we begin, I do expect you to have a basic understanding of 3D space before you start reading this tutorial, as I won’t be explaining stuff like coordinates, vectors, etc.
