If you are a serious web developer that wants to ride the wave into the next decade, you MUST integrate with Social Networking / Media in your apps. Fortunatly, facebook just released a new API that is a piece of cake to use. WAY WAY WAY easier than their old one.
Check out the video about it’s features here: (The best stuff is half way through the video)
I’ve used phpMyAdmin for a while, but I find it to be a little heavyweight at times. Sometimes I just want to run a simple query. The MySQL client is obtuse to use sometimes. So I went on a search for alternatives.
I now use phpMiniAdmin almost exclusively. It’s extremely light weight, fast and has LOTS of neat features. It provides everything I need 99.9% of the time. And it’s easier to configure then phpMyAdmin.
I watched this talk on You Tube by Mary Meeker who is the Managing Director for Morgan Stanley (A Big Wall Street Company, A Good One). It is extremely informative and filled with facts.
At work Shawn Lonas sent this out to all of us, it’s a really good concise overview of some html5 features.
