Chess For Dummies

Sunday, July 26, 2009 · 0 comments

212sg7d.jpgMany consider chess to be the best game ever invented. Chess imposes a set of rules and has finite limits, but just as you start to think you're finally solving its mysteries, chess thwarts you. Sometimes, therefore, the game is frustrating, but far more often, chess proves both surprising and delightful. The deeper you get into chess, the more of its secrets you unearth — but the game has never been tapped out. Even today's monster computers are far from playing the theorized "perfect" chess game.

Chess For Dummies is for anyone who wants to become a better chess player. Whether you've been playing chess for years or never played at all, this clearly written and easy-to-understand guide will help you to

* Apply the rules of chess to maximize winning
* Understand the lingo involved in the game
* Find other players who are just about at your own level
* Teach others how to play the game

Explore move-by-move what it takes for you to be the one proudly saying, "Checkmate" at the end of your chess game. Chess For Dummies also covers the following topics and more:

* Setting up the board
* The pieces and their powers
* Pattern recognition
* What to do throughout the game, from start to end
* Whom to play, when, where, and how
* Online and computer chess
* Chess notation

Ever since chess originated in the 17th century in ancient India, it has grown to become recognized as the most ancient, intellectual, and cultural game of its time. Its combination of sport, scientific thinking, and the elements of art make it one of the most played games in the world. This book shows you everything you need to know in order to unearth the secrets and philosophies of chess.


Visual Basic 2005 for DUMMIES


24wuhip.jpgNo matter who you are or what your background is, you are not a dummy if you are reading this book. You might, however, be a dummy about what Visual Basic is, how to use it, or why it can help you do your job better.
This book is expressly designed to make you a good Visual Basic programmer. As such, I don't spend every page talking about the features of the language, or how to use Visual Studio, or how to connect to a database. I spend a fair amount of time talking about how to make good decisions, build the right software for the problem you need to solve, and not make common mistakes.
Visual Basic despite all appearances is really very easy to use. Much of the complexity of the language is hidden in tools provided to you by Microsoft. Many of these tools are not expressly for Visual Basic, but they will become very important to your success as a programmer. This book is also about those tools, because they make writing good, working programs faster and easier.

PHP: A Beginners Guide


dr9jf5.jpgNo matter which way you cut it, PHP is pretty amazing: a language strung together by volunteer programmers that today has the enviable distinction of being in use on more than a third of the planet's Web servers. Flexible, scalable, extensible, stable, open—PHP is all of these and more, which is why it's one of the most popular programming toolkits in the world.

In PHP, there are usually several ways to accomplish any given task. Some of them are better than others, but a few of them—mainly, anything that requires the globals command—are outright wrong. This is always confusing to programmers new to PHP because if there are several correct ways to accomplish a task, how do you know which one is the best? "Best Practices" has been a theme in the PHP community for several years now as an attempt to answer this question.



Build Your Own Website Using HTML & CSS

Saturday, July 25, 2009 · 0 comments

5368if.jpgIn the early days of the web, when people first started properly to embrace the technology , to publish homepages, and to develop online corporate presences for their companies, they all realized fairly quickly that the medium was quite limiting. Necessity is the mother of invention, though. People began to coax out of their web pages tricks and displays that were never intended by the technologies they used, and the browsers helped them along the way by adding features that offered even more opportunities for this kind of behavior.

Numerous books have been written on the topics of web design and programming, as have many free tutorials that you can read on the ½Net. Many of them were written during those heady years, and were based on what seemed like best practices back then, but their authors were constrained by browsers that often rendered the same well-designed pages in vastly different ways. This meant that the tutorials� authors needed to resort to abusing various features of those browsers, such as using data tables to lay out pages. This certainly got many people building their first web pages, but it ensured that bad habits were ingrained at an early stage, and many people are still using these bad practices years later. Web developers the world over have learnt bad habits (myself included) and must now try to un-learn them all. There�s no longer a need for these prac�tices�they often produce pages that are inflexible, slow to download, and difficult to maintain, but like the badly taught driver who insists on flouting the rules because it�s worked for him so far, many developers find those outdated habits difficult to break.
