In this era where less and less is made in the United States and corporations decide what choices we will have, it's wonderful that you can still build a boat for yourself that is lighter, faster and more beautiful than anything spit out by a big company. I'm often asked, "Can I build one? I don't have a lot of woodworking experience." I say, "If you thought about building one, you can! Building a boat never even crosses the mind of someone who can't." Desire and tenacity will overcome lack of skill, and you will learn all the skills you need, building this boat. And when you are finished, you will be rightly proud of what you have done. And what you have learned, is that you can do a lot more than you ever imagined. The skills you learn and the power of what you CAN DO, will flow over into other areas of your life.

If you haven’t experienced a 360° video yet, you’re in for a blown-mind. I recently watched this 360 degree vlog made by Casey Neistat and had such a good time exploring NYC. Even without a VR headset like the Oculus Rift or Gear VR, 360° video is super fun to watch and explore through a platform like YouTube since you can still move your camera around to see what’s “around” you. I’m convinced that this is the future. Experience it for yourself as soon as possible. Be sure to check out our list of the 10 best VR (Virtual Reality) headsets, too.

SVG elements aren't governed by a CSS box model like HTML elements are. This makes positioning and transforming these elements trickier and may seem—at first glance—less intuitive. However, once you understand how SVG coordinate systems and transformations work, manipulating SVGs becomes a lot easier and makes a lot more sense. In this article we're going to go over three of the most important SVG attributes that control SVG coordinate systems: viewport, viewBox, and preserveAspectRatio.

Social media networks are continuously adding cool little features here and there, and it can be tough to keep up -- especially if there's no big announcement. For instance, did you know you can reorder the sections on your Facebook business Page? That you can embed a SlideShare presentation directly into a tweet? That you can add hidden relationship notes to your LinkedIn connections? (That one's my favorite.) There are so many cool things our favorite social networks can do that may have fallen through the cracks. To help you discover these hidden treasures, we rounded up 20 of the lesser-known features on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Pinterest. Check 'em out.

Float is a CSS positioning property. To understand its purpose and origin, we can look to print design. In a print layout, images may be set into the page such that text wraps around them as needed. This is commonly and appropriately called "text wrap". Here is an example of that.

An e-mail newsletter is the perfect way to stay in touch with your clients or followers. Often your company or website will have numerous product updates, or possibly upcoming events you’d like to share. It’s always possible to post new information to your blog or social media streams, but your audience can only go so far to reach you. In this case, e-mail is certainly not dead technology, merely untapped potential.

It’s landing page examples time again, and this time I’m going to focus on critiquing the pages from an A/B testing perspective. Each example will examine the thought process you’d go through when analyzing a page (or the reaction a visitor might have when arriving for the first time), a testing hypothesis for how the page might perform better, and some examples of what you could test to prove your hypothesis.

An excellent topic on how to deal with SPAM. Is something wrong with StackOverflow's spam filter? Recently there have been huge numbers of spam topics related to football streaming. They have all been spam flagged and deleted but there are more getting posted all the time, I just flagged another 6 or so a few minutes ago. This has been going on for around 3 days now with these topics getting constantly posted over and over again in the

Recently I came across Aaron Hopkins' Optimizing Page Load Time article. It explains in depth how you should optimize your web pages for a faster browsing experience. It's full of brilliant theory, but not to so much about practical tips for the average blogger. So here is a list of 5 things you can do to optimize your web pages without having to redo your site design or set up distribution caches around the planet. It helped me to reduce load time of this web site by about 70% on average.

As the craft of Web design continues to evolve, we’re recognizing the need to develop thoughtful design systems, rather than creating simple collections of web pages. A lot has been said about creating design systems, and much of it focuses on establishing foundations for color, typography, grids, texture and the like. This type of thinking is certainly important, but I’m slightly less interested in these aspects of design because ultimately they are and will always be subjective. Lately I’ve been more interested in what our interfaces are comprised of and how we can construct design systems in a more methodical way.

Now that you know how to define the purpose of your site, create a project outline and create a file folder structure, it's time to move on. In this tutorial, you will learn about HTML editors, HTML tags, CSS, and how to create your first web page using the infamous "Hello World" programming example. HTML 4 is still considered the basic building blocks of a web site. HTML 5 is the proposed next standard, but according to the HTML 5 Wikipedia page, the W3C is not expected to recommend it until 2022. However, some aspects are considered stable and some implementations can be used today. For the purpose of this article, HTML 4 will be considered the gold standard.

Your music library is precious. It's full of hard-to-find tracks, ripped CDs, and rare downloads. It might also be a mess. It can be easier to look up those songs on Spotify than enjoy the high-quality audio files you own. Luckily, there are some great free tools to clean it up and make sure that never happens again. Let's check out the best.

Most (if not all) modern websites use sessions to control the experience for individual users, and to maintain state between requests (since HTTP is a stateless protocol after all). Sessions are fantastic and incredibly useful, but if managed incorrectly they can expose your website to security vulnerabilities and potentially allow a malicious attacker to gain unauthorised access to user accounts.

The windows bitmap file format (.bmp) is the most widely used image file format on windows (next to .jpg), and there are many occasions a program or game has to be able to load or save bitmaps ( raytracers and other non-realtime renderers should be able to save their output in .bmp format, games might have to load them as textures etc. ).
Unfortunately .bmp files are not as straightforward as for example .png image files and provide quite a problem for newbies since it's not that easy to figure out how to use them when without a library or API.

SQLite is an embedded open source relational database (db). It is very portable, easy to use, compact, efficient, and reliable. Being an embedded database it becomes part of the program that hosts it. It is embedded in many popular programs used today. Most use the SQLite C API to interface with the SQLite db. Many scripting/programming languages use the API like the Perl module DBI::SQLite, PHP's data objects with the SQLite driver, or just straight C programs. Not only can these languages (and many more) use the SQLite C API to access the SQLite db but most OS's have a statically linked native binary that can also be controlled completely from the command line. How cool is that?
