My Opinion: Best way to learn Web Development

My tweet: 22nd Oct 2010

This is just my view on learning web design and development. There are plenty of excellent free tutorials on the web. Learn the basics of PHP/MySQL (or your preferred scripting language) and download an Open Source CMS such as WordPress or Drupal. Jumping into such open source projects will make a huge difference. There's a huge community of developers contributing to these projects and will help out with your questions. And yes of cause, Google is always there with most of the answers.

Online Holy Qur'an Dhivehi/English Translation

While browsing and exploring new things on the web, I found a fully navigate-able and user friendly Dhivehi/English online translation of the Holy Qur'an. It also supports recitation of verses as well. Read the translation whilst you listen to the reciter reciting the Qur'an to you. Whoever worked on this website has done an excellent job developing it - well done!

Anyways, have a go and check out the site for yourself:

A lot can be said about John but let’s make it short and sweet. John Lennon (9 October 1940 – 8 December 1980) is one of the most influential Rock n’ Roll artist and lyricist of all time. John is 70 today.

If we minus the greed, the ignorance, violence and disrespectfulness we just might be able live in the world John imagined. Happy Birthday and rest in peace. You will be dearly missed but your spirit lives on.

From WordPress self-hosted blog to Blogger again

I have switched from my WordPress self-hosted blog to blogger again. It's nothing to do with WordPress. I have my own several reasons for doing so. In fact, WordPress is one of the best blogging platform, or lets just say Content Management System available on the web. I will continue developing WordPress powered websites, themes and plugins and distribute most of it for free. Enough said. Adios for now!
